GOSHEN – Orange County’s Human Rights Commission is partnering with Safe Homes of Orange County, the Cultural Equity Taskforce and the Trauma Institute of Orange County to offer two free informative training workshops in December.
“I applaud the Human Rights Commission for bringing these two important events to Orange County,” Neuhaus said. “I am certain that these trainings will be well attended and bring our residents closer together on the many issues facing our region.”
Added Inaudy Esposito, Executive Director of the County’s Human Rights Commission, “Partnerships with community organizations and agencies are an important part of the work that we do. Our primary mission, to foster mutual respect and understanding among all groups, cannot be reached without the help and collaboration of these groups. I am grateful to County Executive Neuhaus for his support of these two very important and impactful trainings.”
Safe and Together: Promoting Human Rights for Adult and Children Survivors of Domestic Violence, will be held on Dec. 11 and will address the importance of a perpetrator pattern-based approach, and the positive outcomes of improving safe engagement of perpetrators as parents.
On Dec. 14, the Human Rights Commission, in concert with the Cultural Equity Taskforce, will host the Anti-Defamation League to offer training on addressing issues of racism, anti-Semitism, and all forms of discrimination.
The workshop, A Community of Difference: Anti-Bias and Discrimination Training, will engage participants in working together effectively to address issues of bias and discrimination.
