SORT BY Relevancy
ONE BILLION RISING is an organization centralized and focuesd upon a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.
We are going to rise and share our ways we are rising on the radio show on February 14, 2014 at 10a CST. Tune in and share with us the way you are rising in the 2 hrs time frame that we have. A chat room will be available for you to share as well; I read the messages on the air. A call-in number will be provided to survivors who wish to share a brief explaination on how they are rising.
BEYOND WORDS LIVE! is designed for survivors to tell their own stories in their own words. Join us on Domestic Violence Voices on fb for further conversations on these related issues - http://facebook.com/DomesticViolenceVoices.
Unbelievable turn of circumstances is a great way to describe Laurie who will be talking to us today. I have been enjoying getting to know Laurie and learning more about what she is doing today with her role at Private Quarters (an organization supporting domestic violence survivors) and part of a documentary in progress called BY A THREAD, as well as her personal experiences involved in domestic violence and why she has been so adamant to advocate for change. She states that she is on a mission to share her story as how she became safe in her own skin, as well as just her story of domestic violence on a whole. There is a certainly level of abuse and violence that women hear about on the news, in the obituaries, the obvious and repeated, daily and nightly abuse; however, there is another level of abuse that is hidden, forgotten about and not on the radar because it may not be thought of as "that bad". At what point does it have to be "bad" to do something about it, after all? What about those less than obvious signs that lead you down a path of abuse and violence that young and mature women don't understand and don't know to look for? Those are the masses we need to reach and educate, speak to and empower! Please join us on May 8th, 2010, at 2pm CST to hear what Laurie has to say to empower all our listeners to changes in our lives.
Danielle Joy Linhart writes the FROM DEEP WITHIN - BLIND AND BRUISED book straight from her heart, which makes it very straight to the point; however, she has written in a format that is an easy read, and one that can certainly ressonate with any teen going through any degree of teen dating abuse. Please join me as Danielle shares her story on our show and tells more about her book, of which a portion of the proceeds are going to help the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline (http://loveisrespect.org)! The last paragraph on her backcover of the book states, "As a survivor, I want to help those being harmed or whos might be harmed, and to educate those who can help prevent a violent relationship. This book has been a path to self-discovery, to close the chapter on that part of my life. I feel as though I have re-lived the abuse all over again. At times, I had to stop writing, but I am glad I continued because there is a chance I will help someone in need." How true! It is hard to write a book about something that was so painful in your life; it is wonderful that Danielle has managed to get past that to share her story. I can't wait to share this guest with you. Chat room will be open for discussion too. :)
On April 3, 2010, I did a show introducing Denise Wolford, based in the Greater Dallas area that is a survivor and activist. Her program is ALL WOMEN MARCH FOR HOPE.

Kathy is a childhood friend of mine. We all lived a "camelot" type of life; often unaware what was going on in the homes behind closed doors. It was an era that no much was talked about that was personal nature. Decades later stories are being told.
Her story involves being sexually assaulted by an older boy in the neighborhood when she was a small child, who later committed suicide when he was a grown man. It wasn't until much later in life that her father affirmed what had happened wasn't right, and he had tried to contact the father of the boy at the time with no avail.
Join us as we talk about Kathy's story and the time to tell as we begin a series of shows in April focused to increase sexual assault awareness, among other stories of survival.

Mary is a good friend of mine who has her own story to tell, affected by both domestic violence and sexual assault in her lifetime. As with many advocates, we are forever impacted by what has happened in the past, no matter how much we let go -- especially, considering the emotional impact. She will share with her story, her journey, and some goals that she has set for herself moving forward.

A woman who has seen death flash before her eyes, but never gave up. A woman who was tortured mentally, verbally and physically for no reason other than being with a man who was selfish and thought the only way to keep her would be to put her through so much pain and to scare her into staying. It worked until she got her strength back that she had when she met him and stood up for what was right. What he didn’t realize is he was only pushing her away and making her stronger for what God had in store. She is now in the process of healing and she believes that reaching out to others, sharing her story and helping those who are in the same situation see that there is hope. She wants to help where help is needed and now volunteers all of her time at a homeless outreach organization. She firmly believes she has found her calling and wants everyone who is, has been or will find themselves in a domestic violence situation to stand up and take their control back and remember that they are VICTORS not VICTIMS.

KNOW: PROTECTION + FREEDOM SHOULD BE AN EVERYDAY RIGHT FOR EVERYONE
Routine & relentless violence is an everyday reality for those trapped in slavery.
The unchecked plague of slavery, rape, trafficking, illegal detention, land theft, police abuse and other brutality against the poor is a global crisis that undermines the well-intentioned fight for their freedom. Unless we STAND against it, nothing will change.
Last year, thousands of passionate college students raised awareness for the millions trapped in slavery.
On April 9, 2014, stand for 24 hours with us to forever change your community's awareness of the everyday violence of those trapped in slavery.
BEYOND WORDS LIVE, designed to be a platform for survivors to share their story in their own words, is opening up the mic to all that is taking a stand on April 9th to share why they too are taking a stand for freedom.

Be bold. Take a stand. Share your Voice!
She married when she was 20 and left when she was 32. Married for 11yrs, she was kept from family and friends, forced to help him run his illegal pirating business, and too scared to breathe without permission. Bruised ribs, black eyes on her; he also took it out on the kids. Her son was also used to run his business. 11 years later, after she had left and gone back countless times, the cycle began again, he tried to hang her. By the time she was 32, she became strong enough to have him removed from the house.
Unfortunately, many in a domestic violence relationship stay in a relationship much too long until something really eye opening makes them say "no more" for good. Come listen to Jean's story and let her tell her story in her own words to you.

Brenner Hope comes to me as a survivor with a story to tell, as well as aspirations to educate others nationally and globally. I welcome her to our show with open arms with her heartfelt story that began with what seemed to be a sincere relationship in a Church environment and led to a volatile relationship that she barely escaped from the grips of his hands and fear of possibly being killed by him or his father, or maybe both. God beside her, she became free.
She's one of strength and tenacity. I can't wait until you hear her story!

It took the abuse of her 4 year old son and fear for her unborn baby to awaken her to the fact they were the victims of domestic violence. She never thought she would allow a man to treat her the way he did. She had no idea the mind games and control and, most importantly, the love that makes strong independent women tolerate things they never imagined they would. The path to safety was not easy but well worth every step to and into freedom.
