Those trapped in domestic violence, or looking to help others in abusive situations, can find help at Highline this month.

October is Domestic Vio- lence Awareness Month, and to recognize this, Highline's Women's Programs is holding a few workshops.

These workshops are in- tended to better help both vic- tims of domestic violence, and those who want to help others

trapped in the abuse cycle.
211 Helpline Information Session is today, Oct. 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Building 8, in the

Mt. Skokomish room.
This event will give infor-

mation regarding the 211 re- source helpline, and how to navigate its system.

"I recommend students go to the 211 resources workshop, to learn how to search for re- sources that serve best for the needs they are looking for," said Jean Munro of Women's Programs.

Information such as where

to find shelter, food, utility as- sistance, health care and legal assistance will be available.

The Women's Programs an- nual Clothesline Project will be on full display from Oct. 16 to 18.

This project is to both pres- ent awareness, and show the reality of violence in day-to-day lives.

There will be T-shirts de- signed by survivors of violence, or in honor of a loved one who experienced violence.

"Students will be able to paint T-shirts using art as therapy, and to pay homage to

those that have lost [their] lives to domestic violence," said Munro. "[It] gives encouraging messages... to get out, and to have the courage to ask and re- ceive help."

These shirts will be dis- played in Building 6 and 8.

Domestic Violence 101 will be on Oct. 17 from 10 to 11 a.m. in Building 7, room 101. This workshop will cover subjects such as recognizing the signs of abuse, supporting loved ones are trapped in abusive relation- ships, and how to find resources available for victims of abuse.

Although the subject matter can be difficult to hear, it's im- portant for the Highline com- munity to become educated on the signs of abuse and how to help, Munro said.

"The more we can come to-gether as a community, the more the message will be out [there] that we are not going to tolerate hate, bullying, and violence in our lives, [or] on our campus and surround- ing communities," Munro said.

And although these work- shops are presented by Wom- en's Programs, all genders are certainly welcome, she said.

"Violence does not discrim- inate, and our workshops will help anyone in attendance," Munro said.
