This annual awareness event is held every October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The event kicks off at 4:30 pm with this year’s featured speaker, Jason Nesbitt. Jason is the Executive Director of the Center for Family Services and was recently awarded the Excellence in Male Leadership Award from the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV). This year for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Women’s Services and PCADV are championing the Engaging Men Campaign, which is designed to promote a much-needed male presence within the movement to end gender-based violence. Following the speech, participants will then depart for a one-mile walk around Downtown Meadville. There will also be music, refreshments, and giveaways, while supplies last.
