HBGC October Community Circle:

When Love Hurts: Domestic Violence and Partner Abuse in Hispanic/Latin@ Communities

"Domestic violence and partner abuse has been happening in Black and Brown communities for years, but abusive relationships are rarely talked about in our communities.  As media coverage of abusive relationships increase (think Rihanna & Chris Brown or Evelyn Lozada & Chad Johnson), it's time to ask: What does this generation think, feel and know about abusive relationships?"

6:30 PM at 25 West Street, Downtown Boston
