A New Direction: Away From Domestic Violence


Rex grantee A New Direction: Beverly Morgan Park (AND) works with adults and children on Chicago’s South Side who have been affected by domestic violence, offering them counseling, education, support, and advocacy. We’re happy to be part of their work, and also to share these images with you.

Part of AND’s work is conducting outreach programs in local high schools, and they recently shared these photos:

Here, AND Board Member Marie Ferro Lusk talks with high school seniors about dating violence, how to recognize it and deal with it. Below, teens participating in Work Out to Wipe Out Domestic Violence Day make a statement, with t-shirts.
