Week Without Violence: Domestic Violence Awareness Panel

Thursday Oct. 20, 2022
6 – 7 p.m.

Dayton Metro Library
Eichelberger Forum
215 E. Third St., Dayton 

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month — a time when we envision a world without violence and work toward that world.

To raise awareness, YWCA Dayton and Dayton Metro Library are jointly hosting a community conversation about gender-based violence and the intersections of gender, race, class and age within. The goal of the panel is to

  • raise awareness about gender-based violence
  • support survivors
  • and envision a world without violence

Panelists include

  • Charmaine Webster, President of Womanish of Projects & YWCA Dayton Advocacy Committee Member
  • Denise Henton, Executive Director of Single Parents Rock
  • Veronica Perez, YWCA Cincinnati Bilingual Intervention Coordinator
  • Sabrina Chupp, Family Services Dayton Director of Woman Line

Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls.

At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence.

Join us from October 17 – 22, as we raise awareness, elevate survivor voices, talk with policymakers, and more with a common goal: centering survivors so that together, we can end gender-based violence.

Free to attend.
