The Silent Witness Project is an exhibit in memory of victims of domestic violence. The Women’s Center hosts this exhibit in the Talley Lobby in order to increase awareness and education about the impacts of domestic violence in our community. Each life-size silhouette carries a plaque with the story of a person who was murdered as a result of domestic violence. NCSU’s Silent Witness Project is modeled after the Silent Witness National Initiative whose goal it is to eliminate domestic violence murders in the United States by the year 2020.
This is the first in a series of four workshops held in Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Today’s workshop will provide an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to hear from experts about safety planning options for individuals experiencing domestic or dating violence. Presenters will cover signs and red flags of domestic and dating violence, how domestic and dating violence show up in the workplace and on campus, tips for safety planning, and on- and off-campus resources.
