Bradley-Angle House seeks
radley-Angle House Inc., which provides
shelter and support services to abused
women and their children, is looking for
women to act as volunteers.
“ We need people who are able to listen to
what a woman has to say, help her explore
options without telling her what to do, and
people who will not place their own values on
her. We are a feminist organization and our
philosophy is one of empowerment, and you
don’t empower anybody by telling them what to
do,’’ says Sandi Clark, volunteer coordinator
for Bradley-Angle House.
Bradley-Angle House asserts that women
and children have the right to be safe from the
danger of domestic violence. The
program philosophy opposes all forms of physi
cal , sexual. and emotional abuse or the threat of
violence as a means of control over others.
Bradley-Angle House provides a 24 - hour
crisis hotline, information and referral services
for a wide range o f needs, emotional support
and peer counseling, childcare and other
Although volunteering is limited to women,
Bradley-Angle House is in the process o f figur
ing out how men can go through the training
“ It’s not that educating men is not important,
it is. That is the way we are going to change
attitudes among men,” says Clark.
Volunteer training starts Jan. 26, but late
sign-ups are accepted. Some of the issues to be
discussed during the training schedule are peer
counseling, incest, shelter procedures, rape,
anti-racism, legal issues, domestic
violence, and victims of domestic violence and
cycles o f violence.

Big Band Era dancing
he Stardust Ballroom Dance Society will
begin meeting at The Embers/Avenue on
Feb. 16. The group offers gays and lesbians the
opportunity to enjoy dancing in the romantic
style of the Big Band Era.
The society was founded in the early ’80s by
Carl Gregarious, so that men and women could
enjoy dancing the waltz, tango, fox trot, or any
o f the other old standards, without being con
cerned about which sex their partner was or who
was leading. Everyone who enjoys or thinks
they might enjoy dancing is encouraged to attend.
For more information, call Jack, 235-1413,
or John, 284-6432.
