October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so watch for the Haven Project’s Silent Witness Display to move through the residence halls.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the IUP Haven Project is working to bring awareness to campus through tabling, displays, and presentations. Statistics like below help to identify issues around domestic and dating violence:
A Silent Witness is a silhouette with the true story of an adult or child that was killed by domestic violence. Many people die each year in acts of domestic violence in the United States. Each person has a story.*
*Trigger Warning: Stories contain descriptive themes of sexual and domestic violence, including child abuse. Please do not read the stories if such topics trigger you or make you upset.
The Silent Witness Display will spend several days in each lobby of the open residence halls throughout the month. We encourage people to read the stories and visit the accompanying table for resources and more information.
For more information, please visit the Haven Project website or send an email to the Haven Project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
