SHC's Projections: Behind Closed Doors



Workspace Sun, Oct 24 4:00 PM


Sag Harbor Cinema’s “Projections” education initiative returns, in partnership with The Retreat and in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, for a frank conversation about abuse in our community and your role in helping to end the cycle. Relationships are complicated. but when one person dominates another through coercive control, threats or abuse – that’s domestic violence. National statistics cite 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 7 men, will be in an abusive relationship at some point in their life. Abuse isn’t happening elsewhere; it is happening right here in our community. Featuring: Advocate & Survivor Nicole Behrens, Retreat Attorney Susan Bereche, Retreat Prevention Education Director Helen Atkinson-Barnes, SPARK Counselor Viviana Bishop, OLA Executive Director Minerva Perez, And moderator Diana Diamond, PhD.
