There is power in knowledge and conversation!
Lori Jones said, “We want to start this conversation about sexual assault in our schools, around our dinner tables, and in our workplaces because this can no longer be a silent subject. It is important that our community is proactive, rather than reactive if and when we are faced with a similar situation. Parents and teens viewing this movie together will create an entry into a conversation that, otherwise, may never be discussed.”
The community showing of “Audrie and Daisy” is free and open to the public. For any questions or for more information, call 740-397-4357 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
