Family Violence Workshop 2:30pm – 4:00pm

We have all seen articles on how domestic violence has increased due to the pandemic.  It is important to know that this type of violence happens in many different types of relationships, not just romantic ones.  Some of our community may also be experiencing an increase in abuse or violence due living at home.  Join us to learn about family violence, the options available and suggestions for safety planning.

Rutgers CARES 8:00pm to 9:30pm

77% of Rutgers-New Brunswick students who disclosed they were assaulted since starting at Rutgers, told a friend first. Rutgers CARES stands for “Creating Allies to provide Resources and Empower Survivors.” It is a 90-minute program that will give you information on how trauma survivors can react after an assault as well as give you tools to effectively respond to that friend and seek out the right resources. You will also learn which resources you can access after you’ve interacted with a survivor.
