Join Hilltown Safety at Home’s Book Group

Hilltown Community Health Center Uncategorized

Hilltown Safety at Home, a program created to support anyone experiencing domestic violence in rural Western Massachusetts, works to connect victims of domestic violence with resources, solutions, and emotional support. We are very excited to announce the creation of a book club for our clients and local survivors!

“Stop Telling Women to Smile,” by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a collection of interviews with women who have experienced harassment. She addresses how common street harassment is, the effect it has, and actions we can take to counter it. Through this book group, we hope participants take away a greater understanding of harassment and strong community connections.

This discussion will be held over Zoom on April 22nd at 7pm. Contact us for the link!

At the conclusion of this session, we will be encouraging participants to join the conversation the following week for a virtual discussion with the author, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh hosted by the Elizabeth Freedman Center of Berkshire County.

To register for this program and to receive a free copy of the book, please call Declan Nolan, Domestic Violence Victim Advocate, at 413-667-2203 ext. 341 or dnolan@hchcweb.org
