Description

Virtual presentation sponsored by the McKinney (Central Park) Campus District Team

The film, Then Everything Changed-Kristin's Krusade, was developed for the Clery Center, a national nonprofit organization, to create awareness about the dangers of dating violence. Kristin's Krusade is an initiative of the center to honor Kristin Mitchell who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend 20 days after her college graduation. Kristin Mitchell was attacked and murdered as she was trying to break up with her ex-boyfriend only three weeks after graduating from college. Her parents, Bill and Michele Mitchell, believe that if she and they had been educated about the warning signs of dating violence, that her death could have been prevented.

The film features interviews with people deeply impacted by dating violence. The purpose of the film is to help colleges identify problematic behaviors that can lead to dating violence. The film also suggests strategies to support bystander intervention, outlines access resources; and provides examples of healthy communication and relationship behaviors.

A panel discussion will follow the film screening and will feature the following panelists:

  • Christine Restmeyer - Professor of Health Information Management
  • Tonyia Williams - Certified Human Resources Professional
  • Collin Counselor - TBA, Counseling Services

The film will be available for viewing prior to the panel discussion. Panelists will discuss the impact of the film and the efforts to prevent dating violence. A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
