As part of the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the City College Cultural Awareness Center will host a workshop on the subject Friday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The workshop’s goal is to explore the pain of abuse and to provide resources in the community to help victims survive, cope, heal and grow, according to Tamara Knox of the Cultural Awareness Center.

The workshop will create an environment to discuss healthy relationships for both men and women who may have experienced domestic violence or may experience it in the future, Knox said.

At the event survivors will share their personal stories of domestic violence and the impact it has had on their lives, Knox said.

My Sister’s House, a Sacramento resource for abused women and children, will also participate in the workshop. My Sister’s House is a non-profit organization that addresses and identifies the needs of children and women involved in domestic violence in the Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Patricia Sokolawski of My Sister’s House and a survivor of domestic violence herself will tell her story at this event.
