Men Take a Stand

The Healthy Communities Initiative and its Domestic Violence Action Team in partnership with Turning Point Domestic Violence Services is preparing to host the third annual Men Take a Stand event in honor of October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Helping to promote an end to violence, the City of Columbus will be lighting the Second Street bridge with purple lights and Domestic Violence Action Team members are installing purple lights on the downtown trees.

Men Take a Stand is designed to recognize men in the community who have pledged to be positive male role models for healthy relationships. The event runs from 1 to 1:45 p.m. Oct. 1 on the steps of City Hall in downtown Columbus. Male members of the community who have made the pledge will have their names called and stand together to demonstrate that domestic violence is not just a women’s issue. Jeffery Bucholtz, a speaker and trainer from the national organization We End Violence, will offer a brief presentation.

The event is open to the public and any gentleman who wishes to be recognized and join the group is welcome. In order to be recognized, please email your name and any work affiliation to cmorse@crh.org by Sept. 30. Learn more about the Domestic Violence Action Team at www.whatsyourreach.org.

Teacher-Blogger Training Camp

Teacher-Blogger Training Camp

Date: Saturday September 27th

Time: 11:00 AM-3:00 PM

Place: Fairfield Inn & Suites in Seymour, IN

The Teacher-Blogger Training Camp is a short conference designed to help teachers create and share materials with other teachers using a blog, TeachersPayTeachers, and social media. Participants should have some basic technology skills such as uploading digital images to a computer and using the Internet. However, blogging experience or creating products is not a requirement for attending.

Many teachers have begun using TeachersPayTeachers and blogging to supplement their income and provide many benefits to their classroom. I’d love to share the benefits that blogging could have on your classroom as well as how to get started with you at the Teacher-Blogger Training Camp.
