"As someone with children preparing for college, I know this is an issue at the forefront of parents' minds," said Murphy, Chairman of the Northwest Suburban Alliance on Domestic Violence. "Our hope is this seminar will arm both parents and their children with the knowledge necessary to keep students safe."

Immediately following the presentation, a panel discussion will address how violence is handled on college campuses.
