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 Robin Colbert from the North Carolina Attorney General's Office. The primary focus of the workshop will be to help attendees get a general understanding of how this program works, who offers the program, and how it plays a vital role in safety planning.
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.
