Every October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is observed to bring to light an issue that affects women, children and men all over the world.
We’d like you to be aware of the following statistic…
According to national statistics taken from the Department of Justice, 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Data also indicates that young people between the ages of 16-24 experience domestic violence at the highest rates. Nationally, domestic violence related call to emergency assistance lines are reported every 14- 17 minutes. With these staggering numbers, there is a great need and importance of continuing the discussion of putting a stop to Domestic Violence.

Today we are going to talk about domestic violence and how dangerous they can be. Many women and men are victims of domestic violence or intimate partner violence everyday. Over this past weekend a popular youtube fashion blogger was murdered allegedly by her ex boyfriend. She finally moved away from him in hopes of starting a new life and was sadly found by him and gunned down, despite having a restraining order. This stuff has to end. So call in and give your thoughts.

Ben Atherton-Zeman returns to Men…Women…and Other Truths in this special broadcas to share his “life-altering” experience: A 23-day tour of India and Nepal, presenting stories, and comedic – yes, comedic - presentations on eliminating violence against women, and transforming centuries old beliefs.
But it wasn’t just what Ben was teaching that altered his life, it was the people, their stories and their courage to continue standing up in the face of heinous abuse. This is a journey you won’t want to miss!
Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men against Sexism (www.nomas.org), and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He visited India and Nepal on behalf of the U.S. State Department Speakers Bureau. He identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes that every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world, and in themselves.

Youth violence in urban communities is linked to high unemployment. However, where do jobs come from? From people who start businesses and receive customers! African American women represent one of the largest consumer markets, and the money they spend creates jobs for many communities outside of the inner city. What would happen if these women concentrated their spending in the neighborhoods where people need jobs? Minister Rahim, better known as Sax Preacher, is head of the United American Progress Association, a fifty year old organization founded by Webb Evans, with the slogan "Buy Black" . Can a change in spending habits create enough cash flow to produce jobs for the masses of unemployed youth? If so, what would it take to make that happen
You’re sitting quietly at home – waiting, again, for your husband or boyfriend to come through those doors. Hopefully tonight he’ll come home before 3:00am and maybe he’ll even be sober. But alas, it’s 3:30am and you’re still awake lying in bed when the headlights finally illuminate the back yard. By this time you’re beyond frustrated and angry, again. But this time you decide that tonight will be the night you will leave for good! As he walks into the bedroom, the smell of alcohol fills the air. “Hey are you awake?”,his words slurred and thick with drunkenness. You do not respond even though you are awake you don’t give him the satisfaction of knowing that his behavior has disrupted your peace. “I know you hear me. Get up. I want to talk to you.” He continues as his voice grows more and more insistent and more agitated with your non responsiveness. “Yes, I hear you, you idiot, I just don’t have anything to say to you” you finally blurt out. Why did you say that? “Idiot” is all he heard and it is enough to trigger the monster that lives within him as he grabs you by your hair, drags you out of the bed and slams you against the wall two months later it’s the same situation all over again except this time instead of slamming you against the wall he almost puts you through the wall. You promised yourself that you were going to leave, why did you stay?

Gun violence and moral collapse:
When you see or hear the slogan Black lives matter what does that mean to you; What is taking place in our country that leads many to believe that the lives of blacks does not matter?
If there is legitimate concerns surrounding issues of policing and police practices in communities of color, particularly the African-American communities why do some individuals attempt to diminished or ignore these concerns, by talking about issues of African-American fathering and community violence among black youths?
