Education and Information
Education is one of the main keys to breaking the cycles of abuse and violence. Avalon offers customized presentations and workshops on domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking. We speak to a variety of groups (civic organizations, religious groups, educational organizations, etc.). These presentations can be provided in-person or virtually.
We also are available to present information about Avalon’s services. This allows the community to gain a better understanding of the different options people have, and how they can become supporters and advocates.
Awareness is another important key to fighting interpersonal violence. By making people more aware of these issues, they become easier to talk about and address. This helps lessen the feelings of shame and guilt that some survivors have, and can make it easier for those in need to reach out for help, support, and services.
During awareness months, Avalon sets up educational displays in the community, offers topic-focused presentations, and posts across our varied social media outlets to help share information. Staff and volunteers also attend community events to provide the public with information.
