FREEPORT — Community Services will host a forum on domestic violence on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Local schools, businesses, non-profits and teenagers are collaborating in the forum, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Freeport Community Center.

Add Verb Productions will perform “You the Man,” a nationally touring 30-minute play about domestic and teen violence. Following the play, there will be a community forum and panel discussion with the Freeport High School students who participated in Boys to Men’s program on Reducing Sexism and Violence.

The discussion will highlight the need for parents to be aware of dating and domestic violence, what can be done about abuse, how to get involved in prevention and how and where victims can get help.

For additional information, contact Drew Wing, organizer of the Freeport Community Coalition against Domestic Violence, at 329-2564.
