Sojourn’s Court Advocates, Christina Lance (L) and Katie Green (R) recently attended the End Violence Against Women International Conference in San Francisco, CA. They received training in relevant topic areas to assist domestic violence survivors in our community.
A special thank you to the Rotary Club of Springfield South who graciously donated bags with plush blankets and gift cards for the adults residing in our shelter in honor of Mother’s Day. They will also be delivering a catered meal in celebration of that day as well as treating our entire shelter to a private movie at AMC with delicious goodies💜
Trevor Noah's take on current events is one worth listening to.
Technology abuse is a common tactic within the context of teen dating violence. Through technology, harmful partners use social media, texting, and other forms of technology to gain power and control. Technology abuse does not happen in insolation. In fact, many young people also experience psychological abuse, physical abuse, and sexual coercion. These examples are only a few examples of technology abuse. It is important to increase awareness about the dynamics of tech misuse so that teens and those that support them can be prepared to respond and empowered around tech misuse. -© 2022 NNEDV, Safety Net Project
