CHOICES in the News

CMC Where’s The Line? Forum

Lutheran Social Services President and CEO Larry Crowell joined Abigail Wexner at the Columbus Metropolitan Club Forum on February 11, 2015 to discuss the issue of domestic violence.

Across the nation, 60% of the population knows someone who is the victim of domestic violence.  The Center for Family Safety and Healing hopes to change this statistic by introducing Where’s The Line?, an innovative campaign focused on raising awareness about family violence and increasing bystander response.
