The women of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Twin Oaks, Pennsylvania will host speakers from Delaware County Women Against Rape (DCWAR) and the Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 101 Washington Avenue from 8:30 am until noon. The public is invited to attend, free of charge. In addition to sexual assault and physical violence against females, a third speaker will discuss human trafficking.

Michelle Robinson, who heads the Women’s Ministry at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, believes that the church should not keep silent when it comes to these issues.

“I feel that we prepare our children to get scholarships and go to college and do well, but we also need to prepare our kids on how to handle themselves when away. This seminar is open to women and girls of all ages, especially teens through adult,” Robinson said.

“I think it’s important to discuss every day, not just because of the (Me Too) movement that we’re currently seeing in the media,”  said Candice Linehan, assistant director of DCWAR and one of the key speakers. “The more people we educate, the more we think that we can impact victims, help them heal, help them to become survivors and, ultimately, save lives.”

Those who attend will learn much about the issues, available services and resources, and have the opportunity to get pamphlets, giveaways and have their questions answered.

“People need to know the warning signs, how to protect themselves and how to identify poor behavior,” Robinson said. “And all males need to know that these types of abusive behaviors are wrong and unacceptable.”
