On Saturday, October 19th HPF had the opportunity to attend Philadelphia District Attorney Seth William’s Inaugural Violence Prevention Workshop. The workshops covered a variety of topics including Domestic Abuse, Self-Defense Techniques and Identifying and Preventing Sexual Abuse. Did you know that 8,000 women were turned away from the only shelter for women?
Rhett Hackett and Miss Vicki from the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance hosted two lectures. Included were tips to protect children and an opportunity for Q&A along with story sharing.
It was clear that when given the opportunity people have questions they want to ask and learn how to best keep children safe from child predators.
DA Seth Williams wants to make these workshop available every year and is committed to make it happen!
So HPF and the Orange Heart will be there. Will you?
