An event to educate people about domestic violence will be held Friday morning.

Partnership Against Domestic Violence will hold its sixth Women in Action Forum at The River Club in Suwanee from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The event aims to increase awareness of intimate partner violence and will focus on teen dating violence.

“We host this event every year because it educates our community on a different aspect of domestic violence,” said Nancy Friauf, the president and CEO of Partnership Against Domestic Violence. “This year’s event will be unique because guests will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts and guest speakers about how dating violence affects a teenager’s life, warning signs and steps to prevent this horrific epidemic.”

Proceeds from the event will fund the general operating budget of the group’s Gwinnett County shelter, the largest domestic violence safe house in Georgia.
