We can prevent domestic violence by promoting healthy, equitable relationships. We help our community think about the conversation related to domestic violence through the lens of promoting healthy, equitable relationships.

Consent has become a buzzword for those seeking to address sexual assault on campus and in the larger community. But what does it mean? How does it work? Why is everyone so confused about consent? Through a workshop approach, we will examine the concept of consent together through practical examples and skill development. Participants can expect to deepen their own knowledge of consent and walk away with strategies to better practice consent in their own lives.
When: Friday, May 18 3 - 4:30pm

What does the Macomb Community Domestic Violence Council do?
At the MCDVC, we believe in giving people the tools they need to create healthy, safe and fair relationships within their circle of friends, family and co-workers. We use meetings, trainings, and workgroups to create a coordinated community response to domestic violence and to offer opportunities for professional discourse and networking.
Our Mission is to develop and sustain a coordinated, broad based community response to domestic violence, to use all available community resources to eliminate domestic violence, and to support a comprehensive network of direct interventions and services for victims.
