WHEN: Saturday June 25, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Later that same afternoon, we’ll come together for the one year anniversary of the opening of the Family Justice Center in Richmond, a welcoming one-stop center serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse and human trafficking.

The party is set for Saturday, June 25 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 256 24th Street (just off Macdonald Ave.). There will be free food and refreshments.

The Family Justice Center, part of a new countywide network, is a powerful example of multiple public agencies and community organizations working together for a one-stop approach to help victims of violence and abuse.

For more information, call the center at 510.974.7200.
