TOWN HALL 2021
Part 1: The Barriers
Part 2: The Solutions
This year's virtual Town Hall discussion brings together stakeholders in the community for a direct, solution-based conversation about breaking significant barriers facing Lowcountry domestic violence victims. The panel-led event will feature leaders across multiple segments of the victim service population, engaging with the community in a collaborative, cross-functional discussion.
*Both panels will now be held virtually.
This year, our Town Hall event is presented as a two-part virtual conversation.
In Part I, on October 5th, our panelists will be highlighting barriers faced by domestic violence victims and why coming forward to seek help during and after abuse can be so difficult.
In Part II, on October 19th, we will reconvene for an engaging panel discussion around solutions and practices that support victims of intimate partner violence.
At My Sister's House, we strive to be innovative and transformative. As part of our annual campaign to raise awareness of domestic violence with a focus on breaking barriers to survival, we look forward to these engaging and victim-centered conversations with you.
We want to hear from you! If you have experiences to share, please fill out our survey before the event: 2021 Breaking Barriers Survey
