Joining Project Empowerment is artist and survivor of Domestic Violence, Michelle Major. In August 2008, her husband tried to murder her in an act of domestic violence. Before beating her and strangling her to unconsciousness, he took a butcher knife and slashed ninety-four of her paintings. She has turned her second chance at life into advocating for victims of domestic violence. Major spreads her story by sharing her butchered artwork through gallery showings and speaking engagements. She has turned this passion for shining a light onto the ugliness of domestic violence into an organization called BAVA: Be a Voice Arts to provide healing through artistic expression. Be a Voice Arts is dedicated to shining a light on the ugly societal taboo of domestic violence by sharing a story of courage and hope through artistic expression resulting in strength, inspiration, and healing.
