Online Discussion on Domestic Violence
October 21 @ 6:00 pm
The Blue Hill Public Library will host an online program about domestic violence on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. in conjunction with Patrisha McLean’s October art exhibit, “Finding Our Voices: Breaking the Silence of Domestic Abuse.”
Joining McLean in this discussion will be Ellsworth artist and fellow survivor Maegan Graslie and Dorathy Martel, executive director of The NextStep Domestic Violence Project.
NextStep helped both Maegan and Patrisha to safely leave and heal from their domestic violence situations.
“Finding Our Voices: Breaking the Silence of Domestic Abuse” consists of photo portraits of women from all over the state, all walks of life and all ages who have experienced domestic abuse, plus audio of each telling about the abuse and their journey out of it. The show is on display in the library’s Britton Gallery and Howard Room through the month of October.
The online program is free and open to all, but registration is required to receive the link to join by Zoom.
To register, call the library at 374-5515 or use the online calendar at www.bhpl.net
