Introducing myself and my journal: It's time!

About Me:
I supervise a dating abuse prevention team called the Young Adult Abuse Prevention Team (YAAPP). We are part of Family Crisis Services, the domestic violence resouce center in Portland, Maine. We are involved in policy at the local and state level, classroom education, curriculum development, discussion groups, and direct service to young women in abusive relationships. Two of our initiaitves are focused on involving young men in ending violence by broadening their awareness of violence against women and offering ways that they can change social norms through simple actions, like speaking out against sexist jokes.
As part of my work, I present on the topic of domestic violence to health care practioners, college students, and faith-based groups. I am always encouraged by peole's response to learning more about domestic and dating violence.

My Passions:
Creativity in many forms. Human rights.

My Vision for the Future:
A world without violence.

My Areas of Expertise:
Community Education

You are Welcome to WorldPulse

Good morning Karen,

warm welcome to you to the online worldPulse community.
It's actually time for someone to stand and speak against the various injustices girls and women face all over the world. It is time for change to reign. Have a nice time sharing with us your experiences.

Best regards,
MESSA

Ghnadi un jour a dit, tout finira bien par s'arranger, et si tout ne s'arrange pas, ce que ce n'est pas encore la fin. Femme, garde espoir!!!!

Ghandi once said it will all get well at the end, and if it doesn't get well, then it is not yet the end.
