NETWORKING

DOES SAVE LIVES

Networking will bring solutions to problems and can bring much to the table if different talents will work together. We are dedicated to covering as many aspects and senarios' of domestic violence & the different kinds of abuse as we can. The bottom line is that this is about people changing their lives and being safe.

VIDEOS

WEBSITES

BLOGS

The videos we have found are really deep! "The War At Home" video should be given an award! And Patrick Stewart has truly touched my heart by his honesty and candor. This has also inspired us to make some videos, so look for a video blog in the future.

The blogs we found are inspiring and show the heart of the matter and those that show the strength to just keep walking!

LEGISLATION

PEOPLE CHANGE LAWS

Crimes are committed by people! Laws are changed by people when we become involved to vote with knowledge! Become familiar with the domestic violence laws and your lawmakers. Get a lawyer that is familiar with the changes in domestic violence laws. Knowing how politicians are really voting and who funds them is important. This area will hopefully help you find that information.
