A special “Get Informed, Get Involved” meeting to address domestic violence will be held Wednesday evening in the Ellwood City Municipal Building. It will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Ellwood City Mayor Anthony Court, the Ellwood police department, and the Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County will be holding this special program to help inform the public, offer solutions, and provide important resources.
Mayor Court said that because domestic violence seems to be all over the news these days, it’s very important to get the community aware of the problem. Court also said that the program is open to the public and encourages all to attend.
The Mayor, Ellwood City Police Chief Mark Romutis, and the executive director of the Crisis Shelter Dayna Sear will speak on the serious issue; a video on domestic violence will also be shown.
The “Get Informed, Get Involved” program was a bit different last year as it was focused on teens, technology, and violence. Yet, this year, the Crisis Shelter decided to focus on community/domestic violence.
