The Brothers of Tau Lambda Lambda chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, in partnership with the John Lancaster and W. Cecil Short Charity Foundation, sponsored its 2014 Domestic Violence Awareness Program on Oct. 18.

The program, held at the La Plata campus of the College of Southern Maryland, provided a forum for the tri-county community to be informed about the many support services available on the subject of domestic violence.

The program highlighted the support available for survivors and family members of domestic violence, the impacts domestic violence has on the community and strategies to increase public awareness.

 

Attendees were able to ask questions of the presenting experts and get clear, concise and accurate answers.

TLL chapter has a history of supporting awareness of domestic violence and prevention methods in Southern Maryland.

This was the second program that the chapter has sponsored and the first for the foundation.

Annette Gilbert-Jackson, executive director of the Center for Abused Persons and Nichole Moneymaker, trauma recovery specialist at the Walden Sierra, answered questions from 

guests.


Each presented national statistics regarding domestic violence and discussed services available to survivors and programs for perpetrators.

The chapter and foundation recognized individuals who over the past year have been exemplary advocates for domestic violence awareness and have supported survivors of domestic violence.
