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.

“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.”
