A Talk by Ted Bunch and Tony Porter
Thursday, October 2
8 pm, Collis Common Ground
While working with men who batter is not something many people think of as a career, both Ted Bunch and Tony Porter do this challenging work every day. They will talk about how they came to see ending domestic violence as men's work and how they have grown from doing it.

Safe Horizon's DVAP offers the largest program for domestic offenders in the country. He is recognized for his leadership role within the domestic violnece community as an organizer and advocate for human rights. Tony Porter is the Director of Addiction Services for Nyack Hospital where he is responsible for an inpatient detoxification program, a rehabilitation program and an outpatient clinic. He formerly instructed domestic violence classes for men who batter and is a faculty member for NY State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services Academy of Addiction Studies where he co- authored their curriculum for clinicians who work with chemically-dependent African-Americans.
