February 22, 2011 -  Volume 43, Issue 16
Pain at All Levels
first in a series of three programs centered
on fallout from the ‘great recession’
Violence in Our Homes –
What Can Be Done?

Noon - Friday, March 4, 2011
Marked increases in levels of domestic violence now plague Salem, and Marion County.  Also, calls to the Crisis Hotline from people considering suicide have increased dramatically.  These two faces of increased violence – turned both outward toward those closest, and inward toward self – send up alarm bells for our community.  Join us, Friday, March 4th at noon, to hear two leaders who know the various faces of this problem most thoroughly:  Jane Downing, Executive Director of Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Service and Walter Beglau, District Attorney of Marion County. 
            Jayne Downing has worked with victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence for more than 20 years.  As Executive Director of the Women’s Crisis Service since 1997 Ms. Downing has trained nearly 30,000 people about domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in Oregon and the Northwest.  She has served on numerous local and statewide task forces and committees, including the Governor’s Task Forces on Domestic Violence and Elder Abuse, the Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force and Batterer Intervention Standards Advisory Board.  Ms. Downing has received numerous awards including the Governor’s Outstanding Victim Advocacy Award, DHS Saving Lives Award, the Vern Miller Key Citizen Award, and the Athena Leadership Award. 
            Walter Beglau has served as Marion County District Attorney since 2004.  He is a graduate of Willamette University College of Law and a member of the Oregon Bar since 1989.  Mr. Beglau chairs the Family Preservation Action Team of the Marion County Children and Families Commission.  He serves on the Marion County Adult Drug Court, the Marion County Domestic Violence Council, the Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) Advisor Committee, Fight Crime – Invest in Kids, the Board of Liberty House Child Abuse Assessment Center, and is recent past chair of the Marion County Multi-Disciplinary Child Abuse & Fatality Review Team.
            Join us as we hear from these outstanding and experienced local leaders, and ask them your questions.  What is causing the surge in levels of domestic violence?  What are the most effective responses available to our community?  Friday, March 4, 2011, in the Dye House at Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill for this opportunity to learn how you can help stop the violence. For those not on our “continuous attendee” list, you may e-mail lunch reservations to: rsvp@salemcityclub.comor call 503-370-2808 by Wednesday noon, March 2, 2011. SCC members lunch cost is $12, all others $15.   Doors will open at 11:30 AM.  The community is welcomed and encouraged to join us!   There is a $5 charge for visitors who would like a coffee and cookie.  For more information on upcoming programs, and directions to this event please go to
