Mecklenburg County's Community Support Services Women’s Commission provides prevention education, trainings and domestic violence awareness to thousands of community members. Prevention efforts consisted of radio, television and print media, as well as community fairs, faith community events, awareness marches, and educational trainings.
Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau (DVSB)
The DVSB is a partnership between Safe Alliance (formerly known as United Family Services) Domestic Violence programs and the CSS Women's Commission Domestic Violence services in a collaborative effort to reach a wider audience. The hope and goal is to reach more of the community by sharing resources and eliminating duplicate efforts.
With a pool of more than 90 volunteers consisting of survivors, advocates and domestic violence professionals, the DVSB would love to accommodate your presentation needs for speakers.
