Conversation Series

The Riley Center warmly welcomes you to the first of our Conversation Series held at our Community Office, located at 1175 Howard Street. Join us on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 from 12:00 P.M. – 2:00 P.M for this complimentary community program where we will be discussing the rise and impacts of Teen Dating Violence, along with steps for prevention. All are welcome.

Every year, approximately 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner (though of course, physical abuse is not the only kind of violence experienced). It is also known that 3 in 4 parents have never talked to their children about domestic violence.
