About The Event

We rise for abuse across the ages to STOP. This year's event will feature a panel of local speakers who will discuss abuse of women on Cape Cod. The guest speakers include women from Human Rights Commission, Commission on the Status of Women, Independence House, Media and DY High school Leo Club. After this one hour dialogue we will 'PAINT' out our six senses as our "artistic uprising" painting activity lead by an Art Therapist.
