Miami Regionals’ Middletown campus will host a number of events in October to raise Domestic Violence Awareness. Admission to all events is free and open to the public.

Oct. 6, Diversity in Christianity: Are women leaders or second class citizens?, 12 p.m., Johnston Hall, Room 115. An informal conversation with three local leaders in a mainline traditional church. Prof. Carole Ganim, Rev. John Paddock and Rev. Canon Richard Palmer will examine modern Christianity and its views towards women’s roles and social justice issues.

Oct. 12, Domestic Violence from a Mental Health Therapist’s Viewpoint, 11:30 a.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. Marnie Levine-Einfeldt LISW-S from Community First Solutions, a nonprofit organization serving Butler and Warren counties, will share her experience with Domestic Violence.

Oct. 12, The Importance of First Response, 1 p.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. One in three women and one in six men are directly affected by sexual violence, and yet so many people don’t know how to talk about it. Jamie Sivrais from A Voice for the Innocent, shares how to respond when we are told by a loved one who is impacted and why you don’t have to have a story to have a voice. This event is co-sponsored by Middletown Men Against Rape and Sexual Assault (MMARS).

Oct. 24, Entrepreneurship through Social Enterprise, 11:30 a.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. In this workshop Lauren Matus from SoulCraft Studio, will introduce you to social entrepreneurship and provide you with ideas about how you can improve your community through equity, social enterprise and fair trade. This workshop is for those who want to start their own business and love to give back to their community.

Oct. 24, Sick and Tired of Feeling Sick and Tired?, 1 p.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. In this fact-filled, call to action presentation by Lori Burton-Cluxton of Advantage Point Coaching, you will be taken down a personal path to learn five steps that you will be able to immediately implement to feel more alive, energized and balanced.

Oct. 26, Why Our Actions Matter - Reducing Violence on Campus & in the Community, 11:30 a.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. This program is dedicated to changing cultural norms and beliefs that violence is inevitable. Bystanders have a huge part in reducing the number of people being hurt. This presentation by Ann Brandon of Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, will help you create a list of proactive behaviors for bystanders and address common barriers when faced with situations that could lead to violence.

Oct. 26, Financial Empowerment Workshop, 1 p.m., Johnston Hall, Room 18. Mary Kovach, Asst. Professor in Commerce, will help participants identify and understand financial abuse, learn financial fundamentals, create budget strategies, and develop a strategy to become debt-free.

On display through the month of October across the Middletown campus is The Clothesline Project (CLP). CLP, begun on Cape Cod in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women, is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The CLP creation phase will take place Oct. 3 – Oct. 7, next to the Information Desk in Johnston Hall. Shirts can be dropped off at any time or made on-site between 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. View shirts designed by the Middletown campus community in honor of women survivors and in memory of victims of various kinds of violence. This event is supported by SERVE (Students Engaging in Real Volunteer Efforts).

These events are sponsored by the Miami Middletown Diversity Council, Miami Regionals Dean's Office and Miami Regionals Commerce Department. For more information on this event, call Mary Kovach at (513)217-4179. Miami Regionals’ Middletown campus is located at 4200 N. University Blvd.
