Next month’s free domestic violence "Lunch & Learn" program, presented by the Mecklenburg County and its partners on the Domestic Violence Advocacy Council (), will feature a workshop on "Immigration, Trafficking and Domestic Violence."

· 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
· St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 507 South Tryon Street, Charlotte

Validated parking is available at the On-The-Green parking garage on South Tryon Street. The entrance is immediately north of the church near First Street. Go to lower levels and park in any St. Peter's Church space (blue section), as long as it does not indicate it is for Staff. If space is unavailable look in the guest area on level one. Bring your ticket to the workshop and it will be validated. A free trolley runs the length of Tryon Street every seven minutes. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch.

The presenter for this session will be Danielle Lombard with United Family Services and Rona Karacaova from Legal Aid of North Carolina. This workshop will focus on the challenges faced by immigrant victims and survivors of domestic violence and provide tools and resources that will aid in working towards empowerment and safety.

The free monthly seminars are open to the public and are held on the first Tuesday of each month. Representatives from local help agencies serve as presenters. The DVAC will continue to organize these workshops as an ongoing effort to broaden the public’s awareness of the issues surrounding domestic violence.

This Domestic Violence Lunch & Learn series is organized by the Domestic Violence Advocacy Council, which includes the Mecklenburg County Women’s Commission, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and other businesses and civic groups.
