Olney Rotary Presents Domestic Violence Awarness Programs
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. In conjunction with “In Honor of Her”, The Rotary Club of Olney is sponsoring a series of speakers focusing on Domestic Violence during the month of October 2020 at the Olney Rotary Club’s weekly meetings (7:30 AM via ZOOM) culminating in an online panel to be held October 29th, Thursday at 7:00 PM (Zoom). To attend, please send an advance email to register. A special link will be sent out each morning and on the day of the online panel. Send an email to request access to the Zoom event. OlneyMarylandRotary@gmail.com.
The Club is working in a coordinated effort with our local communities to heighten awareness, prevention, and healing for those stricken with Domestic Violence in their lives. We envision a day when society says NO MORE to this blight, while all the while providing education, health, and intervention resources for those in need.
We seek to engage the broader community in discovering the facts related to DV – its scourge, its prevention, its broader importance to a healthy society and to our neighbors’ individual welfare. We seek to deliver the news – Good, Bad, and Pending, as we move the dial downward in incidences, prescribing a different motif for re-directing violence to reconciliation and therapy.
If you are somehow affected or involved in Domestic Violence, please consider attending.
