In continuation of our ‘Stop The Silence – Stand Up Against Violence’ Workshop Series, The DVC is presenting our next seminar on April 12th, at 6:30pm; ‘Be an Upstander, Not a Bystander,’ seminar will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

This seminar will focus on the family. Family violence is a community issue, no longer just something kept behind closed doors. In order to make changes possible, men, women friends and family must learn about what family violence may look like, how and when to get involved, and how to take a stand to make a positive change in the community.

The DVC developed this four part series in response to recent family violence related incidents in and around Santa Clarita. This series of programs is presented in partnership with the city of Santa Clarita and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Domestic Violence thrives in silence. The DVC is set on speaking loudly. It is their goal through advocacy to empower victims so that they can become survivors. However, it certainly takes a village to rise above an issue that does not discriminate based on race, age or socio-economic status. The advocates at the Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley look forward to the day that they can shut their doors due to the eradication of domestic violence everywhere.

This seminar will be presented at:
The Savia Building
23780 Newhall Ave
Newhall, CA 91321
