  • Matthew Eaton joins show to talk about 13 insidious rules of sex abuse survivors

    in Current Events

    As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned.  Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors.  Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse.  However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises.  The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived.  He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.

    Dr. Nicholas Harlep on the Assault on Communities of Color

    in Books

    Join me for an in depth cultural conversation with Dr. Nicholas Hartlep, author of The Assault on Commuities of Color and Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success. We will explore the realities of race-based violence in communities of color. What are some of the present day drivers to the violence we are witnessing? What has been the historical past in engagement with communities of color.  The Asian-American student population supposedly scores off-the-charts on high-stakes college admission tests, such as the SAT. Public perception of Asian-American success is evidenced in the phrase “the Asian invasion” — the notion that Asian-Americans are overrepresented on college campuses. Dr. Hartlep sheds light on percieved myths and stereotypes through his groundbreaking research.

    Dr. Hartlep is an assistant professor of educational foundations and is author of the books, The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Success (2013, Information Age Publishing) and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings For the 21st Century (Cognella Publishing, 2013) and an author of The Assault on Communities of Color: Exploring the Realities of Race-Based Violence (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2015)He can be followed on Twitter @nhartlep

    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Jennifer Ward

    in Motivation

    Roughly 4 years ago Jennifer discovered there was a thing called human trafficking. Hearing about slavery weighed heavily on her heart and she began praying to God. God spoke to her heart saying, “Your steps are ordered, You will be at the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and I will carry you in the palm of my hand” This became her daily prayer.


     


    After having received Human Trafficking 101, Speakers Bureau, and Street Outreach training she began volunteering through Salvation Army’s CORRC. In Oct 2014 she was hired as a Volunteer Coordinator. In Jan 2015 the Ohio task force rescued 18 Massage Parlor survivors. As Volunteer Coordinator she was able to care for these women.


     


    Jennifer is still currently volunteering and has developed many friendships with survivors. After opening up one day she came to the realization that she had also been a victim of human trafficking.


     


    Raised in a Christian home, but always feeling like she wasn't good enough. Raped at the age of eleven. Suffered multiple rapes in her teens and homelessness. She became a mother at seventeen.  She felt pressured to marry, at twenty, after having another baby. He abused her mentally, physically, even tried to kill her. After he left her with nothing she worked in bars, strip clubs, a phone sex operator and as an escort.


     


    Going on thirteen years later learning to accept that what happened to her, as a child, was of no fault of her own. Moving past the labels, currently on a journey of self-discovery, she has found her voice and can't keep silent anymore.

    Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show.  Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story.  Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:


    "Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."


    Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime.  Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year.  It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time.  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
