Due to COVID-19, YWCA NorthEastern NY’s October events will be held virtually this year.
October 1 – Virtual Panel Discussion: Exposure to Abuse | 12:00-1:00PM
Join us virtually for a live discussion, as we hear from survivors on how the trauma of domestic violence impacted them as children, and how it continues to manifest as adults. Experts weigh in and share about what they are seeing and what New York is doing to support survivors and their families. Panelists include: Sabrina Mosseau, Amanda Tucker, Matt Dearing (SPD), Adriel Linyear (Youth Aid Bureau), Heather Wilson (CPS), and Jara Traina (OCFS). This is FREE and will be live-streamed to both YWCA NorthEastern NY’s Facebook Page and YouTube Page. Click on the orange words “Facebook Page” or “YouTube Page” for links to the pages. They are also in purple boxes at the top of this page.
October 15 – Virtual Take Back the Night Event | 5:00PM
Join us virtually at 5PM on October 15th for a brief program that will be live-streamed, then take to the streets and/or social media to raise awareness.
