CLARKSDALE – A new Coahoma Community College organization is now ready to promote a culture of respect and healthy relationships on campus and in the community.

CCC’s dating and domestic violence prevention program will host an Open House at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 4, on the first floor of the Zee A. Barron Student Union on campus.

The event will include a special ribbon-cutting ceremony. The campus and the general public are invited to attend.

According to Program Coordinator Kenneth Gooden, organizers have spent the past year training and planning.

Now they are ready to put those plans into action—just in time for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.

“As we prepare for implementation in the second year, we have decided to hold an open house to introduce what our goals are, how we will serve the campus community, and what we have planned for CCC in education and training for interpersonal violence,” Gooden said.

In addition to educating and offering support services on campus, the program will offer professional development for local law enforcement on handling dating and domestic violence.

“We look forward to providing comprehensive prevention education and training for interpersonal violence to the entire campus community,” Gooden said.
