According to the National Domestic Abuse Awareness Hotline, domestic violence claimed double the amount of casualties lost from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
To help community members who are facing domestic abuse, we interviewed the co-founders of the Women’s Group of Mount Vernon, Kari Warren and Mattie Palmore. Warren and Palmore, both domestic abuse survivors and now advocates for survivors, will discuss valuable resources available in the community for people facing abuse at the hands of a spouse or partner. This episode also includes footage of Debbie Knapp, a domestic abuse survivor recently released from prison for killing her husband.
Our Author Spotlight features Alice Faye Polk, who shares wisdom on getting out of domestic abuse situations from her new book “Breaking the Chains to Mississippi” published by TP Rewards.
