Please join Independence House for an event that will bring high school students together for a contest that will provoke critical thinking about healthy relationships, acceptance, equality, respect and anti-violence. The event is part of February’s Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

Art submissions  from high school students across Cape Cod will be on display from submissions of this year’s art contest themed “We Are The Change”.

We Are The Change Pledge:

We are the ones that will usher in a new era of consent-driven thinking.  We are the ones that will reframe society’s thoughts around healthy relationships.  We are the ones that will redefine what respect is.  We are the ones who will transform social norms and reinvent society’s ideas around gender roles.  WE ARE THE CHANGE.  Join Us.

Special Guest Speakers include Robin A. Robinson, PhD, PsyD, Professor, Department of Sociology & Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.

Special presentations from the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) groups of Falmouth, Barnstable, Dennis-Yarmouth Regional and Cape Cod Lower Technical High Schools will take place as well as important topic related guest speakers and an awards presentation.

School administrators are encouraged to attend a pre-event presentation by the Mentors in Violence Prevention groups from Falmouth, Barnstable, Dennis-Yarmouth and Cape Cod Regional Technical High Schools. This presentation will take place at 4:30pm (one hour before the event time). 

Sponsorships available: call 508.771.6507 x221 or email donnag@indhouse.net
