The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with the Baton Foundation Inc., will host a discussion about domestic abuse and violence in the Black community. This program will explore some of the causes of intimate partner violence in the Black community. Also, the program will give attendees an opportunity to hear from panelists whose lives were directly impacted by intimate partner violence. Following the panel discussion, attendees will hear from practitioners in the field who will offer advice and share best practices. Featured Panelists include Ulester Douglas, Executive Director of Men Stopping Violence and a psychotherapist with extensive training and experience working with individuals, families, and communities impacted by violence. He obtained his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and in 2014 completed a three-year venture as an adjunct professor at Emory University. Pauline Mansfield is an author and public speaker. For four years she chaired the Community Advisory Board for Grady Hospital’s Nia Project, a non-profit organization devoted to “positively changing the lives of men and women – one life at a time.” She currently serves as the organization’s secretary and membership coordinator. Ms. Mansfield is also the author of two books about domestic violence, The Turtle Story: 7 Steps to Breaking Free from Domestic Violence, and Turtle Story 2: Life on the Other Side of Abuse. This event is free and open to the public at 101 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.
