Finding Our Voices presents “Men Talking: Continuing the Conversation” Event Recording & Online Discussion

Saturday, January 13 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Following the public release of a video recording of the Finding Our Voices “Men Talking” event at the Camden Public Library on November 28, the library and Finding Our Voices are joining forces once again to bring more light to this important topic. Didn’t get to attend the “Men Talking” event at the library this November, or want to be part of the continuing conversation? Now is your chance to attend and participate. 

On Saturday, January 13, at 6:30 p.m., the three men from the panel in November will join Finding Our Voices CEO and Founder Patrisha McLean in a Zoom event to continue the conversation about growing up with domestic abuse and breaking the cycle. Jory Squibb from Camden, Scott Denman from Belmont, and Dana Ward from Biddeford and Belfast will answer questions from participants and delve deeper into the impact that growing up in domestic violence had on them as intimate partners, parents, and professionals, as well as their relationships with their mothers and siblings.

This is a virtual event and will take place on Zoom. Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUvfuChrz8qHtACfCcjs1DSLtk0QS3THNOS

The video of the original event in November, filmed by Geoffrey Parker, is available for viewing on both the Camden Public Library and Finding Our Voices YouTube channels. Anyone joining the online discussion on January 13th is encouraged to watch the recording ahead of time.

The Zoom discussion on January 13 is an opportunity for those who were not present at the original event to participate in the conversation, and the format is designed to encourage open discussion with the audience. It is free to attend.

Finding Our Voices is the Camden-based grassroots nonprofit marshaling survivor voices to break the silence of domestic abuse across Maine. The group provides a host of programs to empower women to get out and stay out of danger at home, including online support groups, financial assistance, pro bono dental care, and free healing retreats.
