Each day of the week has a theme, ranging from Monday's "Keeping Our
Children Safe" with fingerprinting for children who have registered, to
Friday's "Eliminating Racism and Hate Crimes" that will offer a gathering
for adults to discuss racism, sexism, homophobia and hate crimes.
"We brainstormed as to what we could offer into each day's theme,"
said Vivian Jojola, spokeswoman for the YWCA. "We want to encourage
people to think about creating a nonviolent environment in their homes
and schools and offices."
On Tuesday, surveys about teen attitudes regarding violence will be
given to local school students between classes and YWCA workers will give
presentations about violence in teen relationships.
Violence among men will be discussed Thursday morning at Griffith
Manor Child Development Center at 1551 Flower Street.
All events will be at the Glendale YWCA at 735 E. Lexington Drive.
