The public is invited to attend a screening of the acclaimed documentary “Telling Amy’s Story” followed by a panel discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at the Johnny Arlee/Victor Charlo Theater on the Salish Kootenai College campus in Pablo. This free event is sponsored by DOVES, and is funded by the Verizon Foundation.
“Telling Amy’s Story” is the account of a woman who was stalked by her partner, who ended up murdering her. The evening of the screening is the tenth anniversary of Amy’s death; screenings will be shown across the country to commemorate the tragic event.
DOVES (Domestic Violence Education & Services) received funding from the Verizon Foundation to present this informational evening, as well as a Verizon Wireless HopeLine® grant to work with students at SKC and at area middle schools to explore ways to keep oneself safe when utilizing social media.
When a friend or co-worker is in an abusive situation, it is hard to know what to do. That will be discussed at the evening’s presentation. Although many people believe domestic abuse is a “family matter” only, it takes a community to stop domestic violence. It is our community, and our neighbors, so it is our business.
