    Safety for women, teenagers and children starts in the home and community, not at the police station or on the courthouse steps.  Please join District Attorney Seth Williams, members of his office and other partners to discuss ways to make you and your family safer.

    There will be workshops guided by experts in fields including internet safety for your teenager, avoiding and escaping domestic violence, and the risks presented to our teenagers and young women by the scourge of Human Trafficking. There will even be a workshop where police officers will teach you effective self defense techniques.

    Space is limited so please register today on this website to attend.  You don't want to miss out!  While you may register at the door, you may not get your first choices for workshops.
