Get Equipped with Carrollton’s Prevention & Advocacy Resource Center Event

Coming April 18th at 7:00 P. M. to 8:00 P. M., the Prevention & Resource Advocacy Center (PARC) will be hosting a series of “fireside chats” on preventing interpersonal violence and sexual assault. The event, titled “A Community Conversation, Resilience and Relationships,” will be held inside City Station located on 2115 Maple Street in Carrollton, and will be free for the public to attend with doors opening at 6:30 P. M. Parents, families, and community members interested in empowering the teens or young adults in their lives are encouraged to participate.

Rob Dial, the executive director of PARC, will be hosting the event alongside a licensed professional counselor, advocates, and educators to discuss tangible methods to mitigate violence and promote healthy relationships in our community. The event will be broken down into three, bite-sized discussions covering the following topics:

“1 in 3” (Healthy Relationships) led by Caitlin Meyer from PARC & Debora Johnson from West Georgia Domestic Violence Center;
“Navigating Relationships and Supporting the Young People Around You” led by Ginny Smith from PARC & Debbie Malloy, LPC;
“The Myths About Violence & Abuse” led by Rob Dial from PARC & Amanda Carden with Carroll County Child Advocacy Center.

The chats will have built-in discussion time where attendees can learn how to lessen risk when it comes to relationships and dating. Local nonprofit organizations will also be tabling at the event to provide additional resources to equip you on your journey to support your loved ones. In addition to the participating organization, partners will include Carroll County Mental Health Advocates and Carroll County Family Connection along with the organizations which the speakers represent. As a thank you for participating in the event, there will be four drawings for gift cards, totaling $500.

PARC looks forward to providing valuable resources to the community. If you’re on board with creating a safer west Georgia, join PARC for this event!
