EUGENE, Ore. — Survivors of domestic violence need more access to career development and educational opportunities. That was the message at the Womenspace Community Breakfast Wednesday morning.
More than 300 people attended the free event, which was a record for the organization. The keynote speaker, UO Associate Professor Dr. Krista Chronister, says for survivors she has a few words of advice.
“Continue to talk about it. Share when you can and where you can and with people you trust and to seek help from agencies like Womenspace who are readily available through crisis line 24 hours a day,” she said.
Womenspace hoped to raise $14,000 at the event through voluntary donations and matching funds.
