Community Invited To Lompoc Healthy Relationships Reception

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. One in three teens in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, and one in 10 high school students have been purposefully hit, slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend.

The community is invited to join the Lompoc Police Department victim advocate and guests for a conversation about healthy relationships, warning signs of abuse, and how we can work together to end teen dating violence.

All students in grades 8 through 12, their parents, and interested community members are invited to the Let’s Talk about Healthy Relationships reception on at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 1, in the Lompoc Public Library’s Grossman Gallery.

During the program, posters from the Teen Dating Violence Awareness Poster Campaign will be displayed, and judges will be selecting winning posters.

The event is held in partnership with the North County Rape Crisis and Child Protection Center, the Lompoc Police Department and the Lompoc Public Library.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
