OWENSBORO, KY. (WEHT) — There’s a new piece of artwork in Owensboro – and this one has a message.
New Beginnings, an organization that helps people rise above sexual victimization by offering free and confidential counseling services to victims and their families, joined Judge-Executive Al Mattingly for the unveiling of the mural Wednesday.
The artwork promotes the Green Dot program, a nationally recognized strategy focused on preventing power-based personal violence.
According to New Beginnings, a Green Dot is any behavior, choice, word, or attitude that counters or displaces violence – by promoting safety for everyone and communicating utter intolerance for any type of power-based personal violence.
The mural is located on the east side of the “Simply Chic Home Accents” building at the corner of Third and Allen.
