Colleen at the Memorial March and Red Dress Project
At their 18th annual meeting last week the Women’s Resource Center’s Executive Director Colleen Arnold reported they continue to provide education and awareness. She says they are pleased to see all the community support in their awareness events and in their efforts to end violence against women and girls.
Programs and events over the past year included support groups, Lunch and Learn, the V-Day production, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, Domestic Violence Prevention Month, Take Back the Night, Candle Light Vigil, Women’s Memorial March and Red Dress Project, Jail and Bail and International Women’s Week. President Sheena Reed reported over the last few years they have increased their focus on youth in our community with a youth worker providing outreach in the schools.
Thanks were given to the volunteers, staff, board members and local businesses and organizations for their ongoing support.
