RAPE KITS BACKLOGGED ON SHELVES, RAPISTS FREE AS BIRDS. WHO’S DOING SOMETHING?
We've all heard about the backlog of rape kits at crime facilities and police labs all across the country, and all the information locked in those kits that could be used to prosecute rapists and prevent them from raping again. The good news is that some states are actually tackling that backlog and making headway in those DNA tests - AND finding a lot of criminals. The bad news – huge backlogs still exist; it takes money to process this evidence; and some states are actually charging victims for processing and investigating via rape kits.
Erika Teschke, Founder of RapeKitWA.org, started out as your everyday citizen until she read about the nationwide issue with untested rape kits. Since then she has talked with leaders at all levels of the rape kit chain of custody in Wa State and with national organizations such as the Joyful Heart’s End The Backlog in order to help bring victim centered rape kit reform to her home state. RapeKitWA. org began as an educational tool and has morphed into a community based grassroots lobbying effort that helped to both educate the public about rape kits and steer legislation through the WA State Legislature.
Join us as we talk with Erika to find out what's going on with rape kits around the country with rape kits and the victims they represent.

As a victim of date rape, the psychological and emtional scars are deep and devastating. Even though our judicial system does not consider it a violent crime, the victim's life can be shattered. Chery Yanek joins us to share her story. She is a regular blogger at World of Cherie and tweets at cherylkathleen.
Many got to know Missy Payne from the hit show SURVIVOR, but she has been using her skills as a life coach to help others realize their own potential long before the reality show. She talks with #ConversationsLIVE host Cyrus Webb about her journey and what it's been like to inspire others along the way.
Rape, both in the military and in the civilian world, is a very serious problem that has yet to be moved into a progressive priority slot in the government's ladder of priorities. Despite a plethora of "new" outreach programs, outcry protests, petitions, news reports and "amended protective laws" for victims, the number of rapes and other sexual crimes continue to rise. Is it possible that these crimes are on the rise because a sexually-based offense is not truly considered a crime of priority, or even a crime at all? Television shows such as Scandal, Revenge and Empire portray power as a must-have at any cost, and sex is the most effective bargaining chip--while cases such as that of the late PFC Lavena Johnson demonstrates the viewpoint of the government that rape in the military is to be swept aside in order to protect the "bigger picture", or the honor/reputation of the delgates of the world. Do the widespread projections of hypersexualized media content and the lax approach to reported sex crimes contribute to the obliterating rape crisis in our country?

Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she chats with Author, Breast Cancer Survivor, fellow Life Coach, and former attorney, Jenn McRobbie.
Jenn and Erica will be talking about Jenn's journey through breast cancer, as well as her brand new book- Why is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis.
Jenn was a very happily married mother of two beautiful young girls when she was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer that had already spread to her lymph nodes. There was no history of breast cancer in her family, making this even more suprising. She underwent multiple surgeries, chemo, and radiation, and through her health jouirney, she decided it was finally time to live, love, and be free.
In her book, Jenn shares her experience of how friendships change when a friend goes through a crisis, and offers tips to people who want to be supportive of a loved one, but aren't sure what to do or what to say.

And don't forget- good health is contagious...pass it on!
Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live talks with Tamara Wallace Norman, a cancer survivor about how her faith and resiliency supported her desire to be involved in the academic life of her son.
Tamara Wallace Norman, native of Dayton, Ohio, is a wife, mother, and avid roller skater. Tamara is also a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in December 2011. At that time her son, Zion, was 6 years old and in first grade. He was also in his 2nd year of attending an immersion language academy where we was studying Mandarin. During Tamara’s cancer journey, she took a break from her 20-year career as a flight attendant in order to focus on treatment and supporting her son’s education. Her approach to dealing with life has always been to incorporate with her faith two attributes: resiliency and steadfastness. She has seen the effects of this positive approach to life play out in her ability to remain cancer-free for three years and in her role as a mother, helping her son to excel in his studies. Whether flying, gliding across the hardwood or writing about her passion for roller skating (you can find her at www.lacesandwheels.com), Tamara’s zest for life is most apparent. She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, Jaron, and her son, Zion.
