GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Empowering people in abusive relationships is the goal of a meeting being hosted by the Greensboro Police Department.

The event scheduled for Thursday at the Claremont Courts Community Center is part of a series of events hosted by Greensboro police to raise awareness about domestic violence. It is sponsored by the department’s Police Neighborhood Resource Center officers.

Officer L.D. Guy says the purpose of the evening is to eliminate family violence, and he said that starts with letting people know they have control over their destiny.

Featured at the meeting is a motivational speech by Bettye Young-Stewart from the Sebastian Health Center at N.C. A&T; State University. Young-Stewart is a professional mediator and trainer in conflict resolution. Guest entertainers will also perform at the event.
