Unmasked: Beyond the Chair - Educating on Domestic Violence
Unmasked...Beyond the Chair
Domestic violence is a severe issue that needs to be discussed and addressed in Bexar County. Rates of domestic violence have continued to increase over the past decade. According to research, only 20% of individuals who experience domestic violence report their abuse to authorities. Our initiative, Unmasked...Beyond the Chair, is a direct response to the high occurrence of domestic violence in our community. The purpose of this project is to provide support to individuals experiencing domestic violence through the use of community partnerships and resources. With your help, we can educate and equip beauticians with the necessary skills and tools to empower and protect clients who may be victims of domestic violence.
Who We Are
We are MSW students in an Advanced Community course working to promote a curriculum and training program for local beauticians that will work to diminish the cycle of domestic violence in Bexar County by providing support and resources to their clients.
Please share our project with your friends, family and colleagues to help us protect victims of domestic violence in Bexar County. Thank you for your support!
