PALATINE, IL- State Senator Matt Murphy (R-Palatine) is encouraging area residents attending colleges and their loved ones to attend a special presentation aimed at raising awareness of violence on college campuses.
“Break The Silence on Campus Violence” will be held on Wednesday, October 17 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at Harper College’s Wojcik Center (1200 W. Algonquin Road) in room 102. It is being sponsored by Northwest Suburban Alliance on Domestic Violence and Harper College and other universities.
“As someone with children preparing for college, I know this is an issue at the forefront of parents’ minds,” said Murphy, Chairman of the Northwest Suburban Alliance on Domestic Violence. “Our hope is this seminar will arm both parents and their children with the knowledge necessary to keep students safe.”
Laura Anne Stuart, sexual health education and violence prevention coordinator at Northwestern University Health Services will be presenting information on domestic violence on college campuses. Immediately following the presentation, a panel discussion will address how violence is handled on college campuses. The Harper College Human Services Club will present a skit showing how violence in relationships affects students during their college years.
