2011 YER Presents: “Help! I Am Going 2 B Killed!” Domestic Violence Symposium

The Creative GRP, LLC Presents Sixth Educational Event in Year-Long 2011 YER Initiative

(Baltimore, MD)—2011 has been proclaimed “The Year of the Youth in Baltimore” by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and “The Year of the Youth in Maryland” by Governor Martin O’Malley. As part of this year-long celebration, each month The Creative GRP, LLC will present some type of educational workshop, seminar, conference, activity or event geared towards imparting knowledge, providing opportunity and to give others a chance. All of the events and activities are a part of the 2011 Youth Empowerment Retreat (YER) Initiative.

As the sixth educational event in the year-long slate of activities The “Help! I Am Going 2 B Killed!” Domestic Violence Symposium is presented as a way to continue the important conversations and open a dialogue surrounding issues that impact youth and parents in the community. The purpose of this particular symposium is to provide victims the opportunity to gain their lives back, provide them a voice, introduce defense strategies, and provide ways to express themselves.

According to Dr. Tekemia Dorsey of The Creative GRP, LLC, “Domestic violence affects everyone in the community-men, women, children and families. If we are going to address the issues that plague our youth, we must address all facets of the family-including domestic violence.” As founder and director of The 2011 YER Initiative, Dr. Dorsey has brought her years of experience as an educator and advocate for youth to the table in the creation of the initiative and planning its activities. She strongly believed that domestic violence should be included in the slate of educational activities after hearing stories of families that had been affected. “It may be hard to believe, but most of the people we know are domestic violence victims and one would never now it,” said Dr. Dorsey. “We must learn to recognize the signs and get help. This symposium is the first step in that process.”

The 2011 YER Initiative is designed to empower, motivate, encourage, enlighten and energize youth and parents through knowledge, education and opportunity. The purpose of the “2011 Youth Empowerment Retreat” (YER) Initiative is to address the chronic problems that youth and their parents have been facing and organizers are looking to go beyond the traditional way to develop a new model that address issues of truly empowering our youth to take on leadership positions and then provide them with actual opportunities to apply their new-found knowledge.

The “Help! I Am Going 2 B Killed!” Domestic Violence Symposium will be held Saturday, March 19, 2011, 10AM-2PM at Living Word Ministries, 6709 Whitestone Road, Woodlawn, MD 21207. The entire community is invited to attend-youth, students, parents, community leaders, groups and organizations. Adult tickets are $20. Youth tickets are $10. Registration is now open. Vending and promotional opportunities are available as well. All proceeds from this event will sponsor youth and adults for the April 2, 2011 Youth Empowerment RETREATat Morgan State University.

Additionally, leaders of youth- and family-focused community organizations will be engaged to work collaboratively to develop partnerships and solutions to the long-standing problems plaguing youth and their families.
