PSEPP presents “May I Kiss You?”
The PSEPP Program (Personal Safety Empowerment Partnership Project) which deals with sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking will be bringing nationally-renowned author and expert, Mike Domitrz, to the UTM Watkins Auditorium on April 4, at 7 p.m. to share the keys to handling intimacy in a respectful manner. Known for his blunt, thought provoking and entertaining approach to this sensitive issue, Domitrz reveals three life-changing approaches most high school, college students and their parents have never heard of. Because television exploits intimacy, parents praise Domitrz for how he presents an old issue with a refreshing viewpoint; while students become intrigued with how he makes respect look cool. He provides parents with real solutions to talking with their teenage/college sons and daughters about relationships that may not allow them to receive the respect they deserve. And students love how he uses humor and hard-hitting emotion to give them skills they can easily implement into their own lives instantly (literally by the time they walk out of the event). High school students and college students are encouraged to attend this event. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with free gifts given to the first 50 attendees. Admission is free.
