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 presenters for this session will be Jenny Moore with Victims’ Assistance and Wanda Anderson with the Shelter For Battered Women. The primary focus of the workshop will be to help attendees get a general understanding of how to set up a domestic violence safety plan and where to get assistance.
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.
