Clark University to host exhibit, panel discussion on domestic violence, Nov. 29
Clark University will host a day-long exhibit and a panel discussion on domestic violence on Wednesday, November 29.
Both events are free and open to the public.
An exhibit, “An Empty Place at the Table: A remembrance of the lives lost to domestic violence,” will be on display from 9a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Dining Hall at the Higgins University Center, 950 Main St.
Names of victims of domestic violence will be inscribed onto place settings, which represent individuals who lost their lives to domestic violence this year in Massachusetts.
Inspired by a memorial project by the same name that originated in Pennsylvania, the exhibit offers a way for the public to see the lives that are lost in a community because of partner-violence.
A panel discussion, “Domestic Violence: Realities and Supports for Victims in the U.S. and Around the World,” will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Grace Conference Room, first floor of the Higgins University Center, 950 Main St.
Panelists include representatives from the YWCA, Clark U international and domestic students, faculty and staff. Panelists will discuss the realities of domestic violence on campuses and in communities in the United States and around the world.
