Community Awareness & Engagement


To increase awareness about domestic violence, JBWS encourages local residents, businesses, and community members to become actively engaged in preventing domestic violence. This can be done by signing up for JBWS' newsletter, participating in Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, or by inviting one of JBWS' trained speakers to present on domestic violence to your community.


Presentations about domestic violence can be tailored to meet the needs of any group. We can lead discussions with a handful of your neighbors in a dining room over coffee or make a formal presentation at PTA meetings, business luncheons, place of worship, or other group gatherings.


To schedule a presentation and learn how your organization can help JBWS, please email Diane Williams at [email protected]
