Around fifty people, including students at Morgan Community College, saw two documentary films, “Private Violence” and “You’re Hurting Me, Too!” October 14 at Morgan Community College. The event was presented by S.H.A.R.E., Inc. with lunch sponsored by Coates Realty as part of Domestic Violence Awareness month.
“We like to have events during lunch time at the college to give students a chance to participate,” said Jan Schiller, Executive Director of S.H.A.R.E., Inc. Attendees were also given a relationship survey to complete, if they were interested, that helps define and assess what is a healthy relationship.
