The Community Response to Intimate Partner Violence
Angeles Evans, Community Educator, TurnAround, Inc. (turnaroundinc.org/)
September 8, 2013
Our first platform address of the new season will be presented by Ms. Angeles Evans of TurnAround, Inc., which BES supported last Winter with our canned food and clothing drives. Ms. Evans will cover the various forms of abuse involved in intimate partner violence. She will offer quizzes that create conversations about intimate partner violence. She will highlight some stereotypes, challenges, and/or barriers to helping victims of violence. Her presentation will end with some brainstorming as to how we could mobilize as a community to respond and/or better serve families and victims of intimate partner violence.
Angeles Evans holds a Bachelor’s in Social Work (BSW) from Morgan State University. She currently works as Community Educator at TurnAround, Inc; an agency that serves sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking victims with a mission to free Baltimore City and County from all forms of abuse.
