TurnAround 101 at We Believe You GBM
An off-campus resource for survivors of sexual violence
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 · 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
You may have heard that TurnAround is a community resource for survivors of sexual violence and misconduct... but what does that mean?
What are its services? How can survivors gain support and is there a cost? Are there ways that allies and advocates can also engage with TurnAround? We've got the answers for you!
Join We Believe You for our General Body Meeting (GBM) as we host several TurnAround staff members who serve in roles such as advocates, legal advocates, case managers, and community educators. They will share insights about their roles at TurnAround and how survivors and allies can benefit from learning more about their services from 5:30-6pm.
This is a great 101 to a critical service that support UMBC survivors and our campus community. We invite anyone interested in learning more about TurnAround or We Believe You to this meeting. Following TurnAround's presentation, we invite you to stay for the remainder of our GBM.
We're excited to offer this TurnAround 101 presentation as a welcome to TurnAround. Beginning November 6th and continuing the first and third Wednesdays (during the fall academic term with plans to continue in the spring semester) from 3:30-5:30pm, TurnAround staff will be available to meet confidentially with UMBC community members. Community members interested in connecting with TurnAround staff can meet with them in the Women's Center. No appointments necessary. For more information about these walk-in hours, see the attached flyer.
