"Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women?s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels." -National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Today, We Got Speaker, Author, and Activist Kemba Smith. Get ready for an uplifting show as we talk to a woman who has been on a turbulent, yet rewarding journey including incarceration, domestic abuse, and her victories of today. In a time where more blacks are incarcerated and more black women are victim of domestic violence, her experiences make for a very valuable wisdom.

Man Up Pledge: The pledge says "I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. I pledge to learn about how I can help to end violence and discrimination against women and girls and to work towards creating a community where all people are valued and safe.
On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures.
Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for "serious" intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day.
I am both honored and thrilled to have Audrey Mabrey, domestice violence survivor and advocate, on today's episode of GUC.
In November of 2009, Audrey Mabrey's estranged husband attempted to viciously murder her by bludgeoning her with a hammer four times in the head and then doused her with gasoline and set her on fire. Audrey suffered severe burns over 80% of her body.
Since that nightmare of a day, she made the decision to dedicate her life to advocating for other victims of domestic violence. She has traveled nationally and internationally to speak up and speak out about the horrors of domestic violence and the power of forgiveness.
Audrey has been featured in national and international magazines and appeared on the Dr. Phil Show, ID's - Who The (Bleep) Did I Marry? and on Anderson Cooper. She is also one of the newest members of the the Hands Across the Bay Team, where she works as a domestic violence advocate.
October is "Domestic Violence Awareness" month, and it's important to shed a light on a matter that affects 1 out of 4 women during her lifetime. Too often we continue to believe that domestic violence has a look, or affects a certain race, financial bracket or many other traits that aren't true. Join us two survivors sit down to discuss their testimonies, victories and the aftermath of being in abusive relationships. They may look very different on the outside, but their journeys are quite similar.
Regain your power...
This will be a heartfelt interview with my guest Suzanne Perry who is a survivor of domestic violence. Often you hide the bruises and the shame behind a smile while afraid on the inside to speak up and take control back in your life. Together we will give information on how to escape the behavior and take that first step towards the rest of your life before death becomes your alternative. Domestic Violence is not on a female problem but men are abused as well. Let's stop the cycle and stop the madness.

Our focus for this broadcast is to bring awareness to Domestic Violence.
Statistics for Domestic Violence:
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. Ninety-two percent of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assault as their top concern.
Based on reports from 10 countries, between 55 percent and 95 percent of women who had been physically abused by their partners had never contacted non-governmental organizations, shelters, or the police for help.
The costs of intimate partner violence in the US alone exceed $5.8 billion per year: $4.1 billion are for direct medical and health care services, while productivity losses account for nearly $1.8 billion.

October is the month supposedly set aside for Domestic Violence Awareness. However, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness and the issue of Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence is overshadowed.
It is very important that we push to keep domestic violence on the plate of medias through whatever means are available to you. It is an epidemic and seriously out control and destroying families and relationships.
Join us as we share information regarding what you can do this month to support advocates who are against domestic violence and fighting to make sure that it is kept on the front and not the back burner.
