President of Kristin Mitchell Foundation to speak next at Exelon

November 21st, 2015

BERWYN, PA – On Dec. 10, 2015, as part of their Employee Giving Campaign, Exelon is providing real-life information about dating violence to its staff. Since many are unaware of the issue of dating abuse among teenagers and college-age students, they have invited the president of the Kristin Mitchell Foundation, Bill Mitchell, to come in and speak out on this critical issue. Exelon will be involving their employee group, NEW (Network of Exelon Women) in this event.

zz photoMr. Mitchell will present a personal account of the effect of dating violence on his family. Ten years ago, Mitchell’s daughter, Kristin, was murdered by her boyfriend three weeks after graduating from Saint Joseph’s University. He will speak to attendees about the warning signs and dangerous consequences of intimate partner violence.

“The people of Exelon are taking the issue of dating violence to its associates,” said Mitchell, “The horrific reality of this kind of violence is something very few people know much about, which is strange since it is so prevalent. I commend Exelon for addressing this insidious issue. It is a subject that people figure will never enter their lives, but it is real. It can touch anyone’s life at any time. Believe me, I know.”
