The event aims to foster dialogue, formulate community-based solutions and share resources. The issue has garnered renewed attention in the aftermath of a violent altercation between celebrities Chris Brown and Rihanna earlier this year. A panel of educators and organizers will lead the discussion, followed by an interactive performance piece – titled “The Phone Call” – by Pregones Theater. Friday’s event seeks to address issues related to both healthy and abusive teen relationships including: types of abuse, gender, sexuality, LGBTQ domestic violence, as well as methods to organize and advocate.
