HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS DAY IS ON JANUARY 11TH
JANUARY IS STALKING AWARENESS MONTH
Welcome to The Center for Hope and Healing (CHH)
in Lowell, Massachusetts
For 40 years we have been dedicated to the healing and empowerment of survivors of rape and sexual assault through counseling, advocacy, and education. Our talented team of staff, interns, and volunteers have been working hard using a social justice approach to support survivors and work toward creating community free from sexual violence.
Begin the new year by discovering your own magnificence!
Embark upon a journey that will help unlock your creative self and design a road map for a journey toward self-love.
This is a psychoeducational group for women that uses art and writing-based techniques to guide self-reflection and positive affirmations. Each session will begin with a brief meditation to help you ground yourself into the space, writing/discussion prompts and the creation of your own self-love book through art journaling.
The first workshop is Wednesday, Jan 11th from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. Click here to register or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All supplies will be provided. No experience is necessary.
MOVIE SHOWING AT THE LUNA THEATRE
January has been proclaimed as the Human Trafficking Awareness Month, where we call upon all persons to have important discussions about facts and realities about human slavery.
Human trafficking includes the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor OR sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act (an act where anything of value is exchanged) is induced by force, fraud, or coercion. It also includes any sexual exploitation of a child for commercial gain.
Massachusetts is one of several states that has an established task force to confront this criminal industry, and it works with local advocacy agencies such as CHH to help survivors of trafficking.
To learn more about Sex and Labor Trafficking in New England, listen to this local WGBH 4-part story.
If you are or have been a victim of human trafficking, or have reason to suspect human trafficking is taking place in your community, here are some local resources. You can always call our 24-hour hotline at 800-542-5212.
12 WEEK SELF-LOVE WORKSHOP SERIES
Legal definitions of stalking vary from one jurisdiction to another. However, a good working definition of stalking is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.
Stalking behaviors can begin as early as childhood and can range from approaching the victim or showing up in places when the victim didn’t want them to be there; making unwanted telephone calls; leaving the victim unwanted messages (text or voice); and watching or following the victim from a distance, or spying on the victim with a listening device, camera, or global positioning system were the most commonly reported stalker tactics by both female and male victims of stalking.
