    Survivor Voice: Survivor2013 #Project1000000Voices Journey Beyond the Ravine

    in Women

    Her Story:


    "I started dating a guy in Dec 2012. He told me how his mother past away and his father was a drunk. How his ex was mean to him and everybody gave up on him. Me being a mother felt the need to protect him and show him I was always going to be there. We had a wedding ceremony on 5-4-13 and the abuse physical and mentally started. 5 weeks after that he got really drunk and became angry and extremely violent. On that night as I was trying to calm him down while driving down the road with my 8 year old son in the back seat he had a fit of rage and began to beat the windshield with his fist, then he reached across me and snatched the steering wheel out of my hand and down a 50 ft reven we went. I was cut out by jaws of life and airlifted to the nearest tram a hospital in alabama. When I got there... My advice is, I know your scared and I know what you have been threaten with but if you stand up for yourself in the right way and set your mind to it all things are possible. Call, report, don't hide it, tell everyone you know, get away, you can make it without them!"

    Photographer Activist: Nerissa Sparkman - Imperfect Project

    in Family

    Repeat Broadcast from 4/3/14


    Nerissa Sparkman is a photographer who was challenged by a friend to take pictures of women in their natural state (no makeup, no perfectly brushed hairdos, etc.), which is a challenge when you are not only taking pictures of women with their inner and outer beauty as well.  By providing a platform for women to post their own self-pictures, she created a dialogue of honesty and acceptance of our truer self's beauty. 


    She will come on our show on this day to tell about her story and the reason for her passion in her work.

    Survivor Voices: Cat #Project1000000Voices - Voices: DV Video Installation

    in Relationships

    Sharing Her Story, Cat states:


    "I grew up in a violent household. One image that has stuck with me was when he hit her over the head with a bottle. My mom never really speaks about what happened and she never left her situation. As an artist and filmmaker, felt it was important to speak to women who got out of their situations and hear what they had to say. The most important thing is that domestic violence is more widespread than people realize. Not many people knew about my family situation. I've also found out some of my own friends were in similar situations and I never knew. So being vocal about it is important. It's important to let people know how may people this affects and how many different types of people it affects regardless of age, race, or social status. And to hear what domestic violence entails. It's different for so many women."


    Join us and hear her whole story!

    Lympedema Voices #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Treatment Act 2014 Reflection

    in US Government

    In September 2014, a group of lymphedema advocates converged upon the Capitol Hill to talk to the US House of Represenatives and Senators about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, as well as had a Congressional Hearing to empasize the importance that it means to many lymphedema patients, caregivers, physicians, and more.  As a result, we ended up with 4 bipartisan lead sponsors from the House of Represenatives, and 91 cosponsors from many of the States.  We really need about 200 cosponsors to help ensure that this Bill passes the House.  


    Guidance was provided by the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, National Lymphedema Network, and many other supporters of the Bill.


    Join us on our Lymphedema Journey and Advocacy for a discussion on a reflection of those this year's journey at Capitol Hill (DC) and a call of action that we would like for you to do as soon as possible.

    Through my Domestic Violence Voices fb page, I have been introduced to the works of Shaun C. Singh who had this production on Broadway and is, now, ready to bring it back into production with an updated version and aspirations to take it off Broadway to a city near you.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K3ehI6fljc  He needs your help to bring everything to fruition.  Come and hear about his endeavors and how he is a part of the catalyst for social justice issues -- especially with respect to domestic violence issues (something that he has had direct knowledge about).  A great way of sharing his voice in the expression of fine arts.

    Victim Voice Told Through Family #Project1000000Voices Justice for Jolissa

    in News

    Jolissa Rangel Soccorro, 10/29/92 - 10/25/13, was murdered by 3 cowardly men who entered her home by shooting the door down and killed her.  Only 21 years old and leaving a lot of friends and family who love and hold her dear in their memory to this day, with hopes of having her murderers are brought to justice -- not to forget, but just to be able to let go and bring closure to this seemingly senseless murder.


    Jolissa's family is going to join me on the show and reflect upon their daughter/sister that they miss so very much, what they know that has been done, and what they are hoping to result through the listeners of this show and beyond in their hopes and dreams that justice is finally had for Jolissa.


    It's a story of inspiration and hope that we hope you will join us and help them to share their voice(s) with others to make a difference.  Besides the murderers taking Jolissa from her famil, they also took her from her 3 yr old son.

    You may also contact the family at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justice-For-Jolissa/649858311732245.  Be sure to share that page with your family and friends. If you, or anyone, has any information to share about the case, they are working with the FBI at this point.  They are asking for the community help to bring these three cowards to justice.
