On Wednesday, November 3, at 9am, Katie Wessling from the CVC and Robert Boedeker from LSEM will be presenting at the St. Louis Family Violence Council Meeting on the significant changes to the Order of Protection laws in Missouri this year and local impacts. These changes can effect all survivors who are considering filing for an order of protection. Instead of hosting the same information within the same month, SLEDSVN is promoting this training and encouraging any members to attend. All are invited to attend - also, please share widely with your co-workers!
