The Malone University Social Work Club, Counseling Center, and Health and Wellness Committee, in conjunction with the Domestic Violence Project, Inc., will present Take Back the Night, Tuesday, October 19, 7 pm., in the Johnson Center for Worship and the Fine Arts, located at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W. in Canton.
Featured speaker will be Nicole Mosley, a senior youth ministry major from Cleveland. As a non-traditional student, Nicole has persevered and risen above many challenges and much adversity. She was raised in a single-parent home where domestic violence and various forms of abuse were common place. But her story offers hope. Nicole has overcome the effects of abuse, as well as witnessing the domestic abuse of her mother. Nicole will share stories of survival as well as healing and hope -- and what helped her make peace with her past.
While attending Malone University, Nicole has been actively involved in Department of Multicultural Services; the One Voice Gospel Choir, where she served as student president for two years; the mentorship program, in which she served as a mentor and program coordinator; a service learning trip to South Africa; and has worked as an office assistant to the Campus Pastor for four years. She completed an internship at the Pregnancy Support Center of Stark County, where she continues to volunteer as a peer-counselor, and has volunteered for the American Heart Association.
Take Back the Night events honor victims, celebrate survivors, and challenge community members to help stop violence against women.
The Domestic Violence Project, Inc., provides emergency and supportive services, including drug and alcohol treatment, to victims of domestic violence, and promotes increased public awareness of domestic violence issues.
