Dr Laura Finley is a board member of the non-profit organization "No More Tears". The organization is "focused on helping immigrant women in the United States who are victims of spousal abuse. Many of these women are brought to America via arranged marriages and are scared to speak out against their oppressor due to the ramifications they will face in their home country or for the fear of being sent back. No More Tears works with these women in helping to provide them with legal counsel, financial assistance and psychotherapy. We help with these women in not only wiping away the tears, but also making sure that there are No More Tears!" Laura Finley is the Founding Mother and Director of the Center for Living and Teaching Peace. She is also Assistant Professor of Sociology and Criminology at Barry University and a trainer with the Children’s Services Council of Broward County.
