Empress Jai will make a presentation in London on domestic violence in the Black community.

Domestic violenceMs Jai is an Award winning Criminal Justice Safeguarding Consultant.

The event organised by Black History Studies, will be held at the PCS Headquarters, 160 Falcon Road, Clapham Junction, London SW11 2LN, on 19th November 2014 from 19:00 to 21:00.

“While other problems such as the education attainment gap, stop and search, gun and knife crime, death in police custody, mental health in Black communities are often the topic of discussion and activism, domestic violence is rarely discussed. It should be,” says Black History Studies. “Domestic violence is a problem in the Black community. It is more frequent. More lethal. Relationship abuse can happen to anyone. It involves more than physical violence. Both men and women are affected.”

In her presentation, Ms Jai will cover the following topics and more: What constitutes abuse? What are some of the indicators of an abusive relationship? What are the effects of domestic violence on children and young people? How to support victims of domestic violence.

Hot food and refreshments will be on sale. Places for this presentation are limited so if you are interested in attending please send an email to info@blackhistorystudies.com
