Relationship Violence

Safe Passage

The family of Gabby Petito is establishing a foundation in her name to help families of other missing people after the 22-year-old’s disappearance and murder dominated news headlines and was shared widely on social media.  Gabby’s case has highlighted a disparity between cases of missing white women and those of people of colorAnd Another Thing examines the phenomenon known as “Missing White Woman Syndrome” and shines a light on cases of people of color who are missing here in New England.

What would you do if someone you care about was in an unhealthy relationship?  Do you feel confident in your ability to intervene in a violent situation? Have you ever felt close to crossing the line into treating someone in an abusive way? Do you feel the media handles all missing persons cases equitably? Share your experiences and let us know your thoughts. 

We’ll also hear from a local teenager who’s learning about preventing relationship violence in a new program at Easthampton High School and learn about a Massachusetts based first-in-the-nation helpline to support abusers or potential abusers.
