GREAT FALLS, VA – The Kristin Mitchell Foundation announced that Bill Mitchell, KMF president, will be speaking before the Great Falls Rotary Club in Great Falls, Virginia, on February 2, 2017.
Mr. Mitchell’s speech will tell the story of his daughter, Kristin’s, tragedy years ago. His presentation will also use other examples of ill-fated relationships derived from stories he has heard from victims of dating abuse. “What I talk about is not from reading books, it’s from hearing it from survivors and from victims’ families,” he said.
An important facet of this speech will be when Mr. Mitchell reviews the Warning Signs that signal potentially unhealthy dating relationships. The “red flags” have been gathered from discussions with professionals in the domestic violence field and from actual survivors. He will review ways to safely break away from an abusive relationship. This is helpful for an abused person – or any friend or family member who knows someone who is in this kind of difficulty.
“We focus on speaking before private companies who want to know more about domestic violence. There is a deep interest in what might be going on in the lives of their employees,” Mr. Mitchell said. “Having this opportunity to speak before the Great Falls Rotary Club is perfect since we will have multiple business leaders and entrepreneurs in one room–all at one time.”
The Mission of the Great Falls Rotary Club is Service Above Self – to serve others in need, promote understanding, health, peace, and the enduring values of truth, fairness, and sacrifice. The Club is a group of about 55 business members that is non-political, non-religious and whose members come from a wide range of occupations. Like all Rotary Clubs, they serve the community (locally, nationally and internationally).
The Kristin Mitchell Foundation is interested in opportunities to speak out about dating violence and domestic violence. The surest way of eliminating “DV” from someone’s life is to gain valuable information that empowers those who are being abused. The mission of the Kristin Mitchell Foundation is to end the devastating effects of dating abuse by raising awareness about warning signs and preventative actions.
