Penn State Law to Host Domestic Violence Awareness Event

The Penn State Dickinson School of Law’s Family Law Clinic will host an event called “A Different Ending: How to Change the Domestic Violence Story” on October 2 in the Greg Sutliff Auditorium of the Lewis Katz building at 6 p.m. The Family Law Clinic provides free legal services to people throughout central Pennsylvania who have issues related to family matters.

The event will feature the film “Telling Amy’s Story,” a project from Penn State Public Broadcasting. This documentary follows the timeline of Amy Homan McGee’s 2001 domestic violence homicide committed by her husband.

After the documentary, there will be a panel discussion with domestic violence experts, which will focus on how to create a safe world for women.

The guest speakers for this event will be:

The event will also feature a special remembrance to honor victims, survivors, and their loved ones. Specifically, the event will remember Traci Raymond Miscavish, who was a victim of domestic homicide while receiving help from the Family Law Clinic.

People interested in this free event may register online.
