Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse offers educational presentations and workshops about domestic abuse to community members and organizations. The purpose of this Emerge! service is to increase awareness about domestic abuse by defining abuse, dispelling its myths, and by providing information to help those in abusive relationship.
Below, you will find descriptions of these educational opportunities, as well as contact information for a staff member who can assist you with additional information and answer any questions you might have.

Safety is Beautiful Workshop
Safety is Beautiful is a presentation that promotes domestic abuse awareness for salon professionals, who we have found through our research, are likely to interact with victims of abuse. We tailor the length of the presentation to the availability of the salon while still providing all the necessary information to know how to recognize, respond and refer. While we are aware that the need for domestic abuse awareness for the community is great, we struggle with capacity to reach out to all of the Southern Arizona salons therefore we look to identify individuals from the salon community that would be interested in representing and doing peer presentations for their peers in other salons in the community. The peer educator would receive in depth training by our staff. This program is in partnership with Tucson’s salon professionals and Pima County Attorney’s Office.
