Domestic Violence Part II

Domestic Violence Part II

March 20, 2022

Story Stitchers youth artists discuss domestic violence in a live podcast recording on stage with Brigid Welch, the Director of Crisis and Community Education at Safe Connections. Learn how to recognize domestic violence and how to help yourself or a loved one get out of a bad situation.

Brigid has a background in the Higher Education and Intimate Partner Violence/Sexual Violence fields. Brigid has lived in St. Louis for 10 years and has a master’s degree in Education and master’s degree in Social Work. Through their work on college campuses, Brigid learned about the prevalence of sexual violence and relationship violence among college students. The reality of addressing such issues on campus was the catalyst for Brigid to go into advocacy for survivors and ultimately prevention education. Brigid is a certified intimate partner violence/sexual violence advocate for the states of Missouri and Illinois, has direct service experience in survivor support, and serves as a prevention educator throughout the St. Louis metro area. Brigid is passionate about sexual health education, anti-racist/anti-oppression work, and creative expression.
