Thursday, September 21
Noon – 1:00 PM
St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) in the Ruth Maney Room, at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth
Kristi Beaver is a survivor of violence. Her own personal experiences lead her to become the Community Education & Development Coordinator for Safe Haven Shelter & Resource Center. This shelter is one the earliest created in the United States for victims of domestic violence.
Kristi explains “The History of the Domestic Violence Movement in Duluth.” A local group created the model for responding to domestic violence that is used both nationally and worldwide. Resources were created to aid victims of domestic abuse and provide assistance to legally protect them from their assailants. According to Kristi, “The courageous and diligent work of a local mighty few expanded into the many moving parts of our coordinated community response – a response to violence that our community continues to improve upon as we serve as a model for other communities across the country.”
There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations). Admittance to this event is free to the public. ARCO coffee is provided.
