DAIS (Domestic Abuse Intervention Services) will be hosting its seventh annual Celebrate Independence! Luncheon on June 24, 2014. This luncheon is an awareness event to benefit domestic violence survivors as well as the community. This year’s speaker is Dr. Jill Murray, the nation’s leading expert on the subject of teen dating violence. Abusive dating relationships are occurring at an epidemic rate with far-reaching implications for further violence both in personal relationships and in society at large. Dr. Murray has appeared on more than 350 television shows – including Oprah, 20/20, and Good Morning America. She has also authored the best-selling books: But I Love Him, Destructive Relationships, and But He Never Hit Me.
