Advocacy Fair at SHS

SHS Students visited with representatives from four community organizations on the topic of dating abuse and relationship violence prevention. Representatives from Pittsburg State University’s “Students for Violence Prevention”, Crawford County Health Department, Children’s Advocacy Center, and SafeHouse were all represented. The Crawford County Extension Agent also sent informative handouts. Students visited each booth during their lunch time to learn more about the red flags of dating abuse and resources available to help the victims. After visiting with the community representatives, students signed a pledge card stating that they would make healthy relationship choices, stand up for victims, and respect their bodies and others’ bodies through their words and actions. 84 SHS students completed this pledge! This Advocacy Fair was sponsored by SHS FCCLA Member, senior Carrissa Peacock, who is competing in an FCCLA STAR Event called “Advocacy”.
