In addition, CTI’s Youth build has finished a display for men’s statements against domestic violence of women and pledge sheets are ready (attached). Please copy and distribute to interested men in your dept’s. We will have one large display in City Hall Lobby and a smaller display at the Lowell Senior Center. These pledge sheets will be utilized for men to write a statement or poem, picture, etc. about why they are against domestic violence of women. Sheets will be available at the Senior Center front desk, City Manager’s Office-Lynda Clark & Greeters desk in City Hall Lobby. We would like to receive several back for display. We would like to collect them all by Friday, Feb. 28th. The drop off location is the City Manager’s Office, Attn: Lynda Clark or the front desk of Lowell Senior Center – 276 Broadway Street, Lowell, MA. Please talk to as many men as you can about voicing their opinion for the display. Thank you.
