In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Lafayette is partnering with local community organizations, Turning Point and Crime Victims Council, and student organizations, PASA and OneLove, in hosting a screening of Finding Jenn’s Voice on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Colton Chapel.
The award-winning film tells the story of a woman silenced. Jennifer Snyder was murdered in 2011 by her married boyfriend after he learned that she was pregnant. Like many women who are in unhealthy, controlling relationships, her killer had never so much as hit her before the day he shot her. Finding Jenn’s Voice lifts the story of Jennifer’s death out of the tabloid narrative that blames victims and instead helps viewers understand the complexities of controlling relationships.
After the film, attendees can stay for a panel discussion/Q&A with folks from Turning Point, CVC, PASA, and OneLove and producer/director Tracy Schott, featured panelist. Participants can expect to identify warning signs, learn ways to have hard conversations around them, support survivors, and learn about community resources. Register.
