For the past 13 years the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team has hosted a training session to help educate attendees about current issues.

Autrey is a community advocate for DART. She said topics such as Bullying 101, From Bullying to Battering:, Sexting and Texting, and Dealing with Family Issues in the Community and the Court will be discussed.
