Community Conversation: Domestic Violence 101

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

What are the dynamics of domestic violence, and how do we support survivors regaining control of their lives?

Join us to talk about the specific tactics of power and control used to perpetuate domestic violence (DV). Through interactive activities and discussion, we will work together to gain a deeper understanding of DV and learn some key ways we can all support the survivors in our lives.

This conversation will be moderated by members of CORA: Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse.

About Confronting Violence: Improving Women's Lives
From July 8-August 17, the Menlo Park Main Library will host this special traveling exhibition produced by the National Library of Medicine.

Activists and reformers in the United States have long recognized the harm of domestic violence and sought to improve the lives of women who were battered. Our temporary exhibition Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives explores the developments during latter half of the 20th century, when nurses took up the call. Beginning in the late 1970s, nurses were in the vanguard as they pushed the larger medical community to identify victims, adequately respond to their needs, and work towards the prevention of domestic violence.

Visit the Main Library to experience the interactive exhibition panels, and join us for our series of interrelated programming.
