Event Description

January 12, 2011 Updated Oct 22, 2012 at 8:35 AM EDT

Join us for the 16th Annual YWCA Circle of Women Luncheon as we focus on the prevalence of teen and young adult dating violence. You'll learn what signs to look for, how the YWCA can help, and hear from keynote speaker, Johanna Orozco:

Johanna is a Teen Educator for the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center of Greater Cleveland. Jo has turned tragedy into triumph. After being in an abusive relationship for two years, she had the courage to leave her abuser—a decision that almost took her life. Shortly after leaving him, her former boyfriend sexually assaulted her and later shot her in the face with a sawed-off shotgun.

Johanna shares her compelling story with schools, community organizations, parents, and concerned citizens, to educate them about dating violence. She focuses on self-respect, confidence and what signs to look for in an unhealthy relationship. Johanna has been featured in The Cleveland Plain Dealer and has appeared on 20/20, Oprah Winfrey, and on The View with Vice President Joe Biden. On October 2011, Johanna received an award and was recognized as a Champion of Change by President Barack Obama.
