YWCA Greenwich to Screen Film on Teen Dating Violence for Parents/Adults

The YWCA Greenwich, in partnership with the One Love Foundation invites adults and parents to a conversation and film screening of Escalation, a film shown in over 500 high schools and colleges that highlights the earliest warning signs of relationship violence.

According to a release from the YWCA, the statistics are staggering: 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be in a violent relationship in their lifetime.

Nearly 50% of these women and 40% of these men experience relationship violence for the first time between 18-24.

Young women ages 16-24 are at a three times greater risk for abuse.

The film and conversation are set for Tuesday, February 28 from 6:30 – 8:30pm, with the film beginning at 7:00pm at the YWCA Greenwich, 259 East Putnam Ave.

The event is free and open to all. Please RSVP by Monday, Feb 27 to rsvp@ywcagreenwich.org

For questions call Meredith Gold at (203) 869-6501, extension 176 or m.gold@ywcagreenwich.org
