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 Jacquie Wolochwianski from the Mecklenburg County Women's Commission. This workshop will focus on the effects of dating violence on teens, provide community resources, and explore what the community can do to prevent teen dating violence.
The free monthly seminars are open to the public 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.
