“The Yellow Dress”, October 11

10/11 “The Yellow Dress” Intimate Partner Violence
The UConn Police invites students, staff, and faculty to the “The Yellow Dress” performance by Deana’s Educational Theater in the UConn Student Union Theater on Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 from 7pm-8pm. There is no charge for admission. This one-woman play portrays the signs and dangers of dating violence through the story of a young woman who was a victim of intimate partner violence. The performance is followed by a thought-provoking discussion that engages the audience in a reflection of the events that occurred throughout the performance.

In conjunction with “The Yellow Dress,” the UConn Police is also sponsoring a winter-clothing drive to donate winter necessities to CT Domestic Violence shelters through the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence this October. Donations will be accepted September 28th through October 10th in the UCPD Library Substation located in the basement near the Leisure Reading Room. Individuals may also drop off donations to the UConn Police Department and direct the items to the Community Policing Unit.
