The VOW with Dorlisa Adams

November 26, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

While pursuing her education, Mrs. Adams established a nonprofit organization in 2014 called Visions of Women (V.O.W.) that garnered a 501 (c) (3) status in 2018. This organization is a volunteer-based group that helps teens and college students bring awareness towards teen dating violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and mental health to their college campuses. Today, students continue to provide self-awareness and prevention tools to their communities.
V.O.W. arose from Mrs. Adams’s experiences working in domestic violence shelters as well as the prevalence of unhealthy relationships and their negative impact on students in college. During her time at school, it became apparent that young women were not informed on how to advocate for themselves; had never had a healthy relationship modeled for them; nor were aware of the cycles of abuse or how to break them.
