The drama never seems to end for the NFL. After years of getting a slap on the hand for violence against women, the athletes are going to face a new tough policy in the future. And the NFL hired former Manhattan prosecutor Lisa Friel as an advisor for that revamp in policy. Problem is, she is already getting wishy washy about how the policy has to look out for the athletes. So is all the hype from the NFL just that - hype?
Join us with MIchael O'keeffe, award winning sports reporter for the NY Daily News as we discuss his take on abuse in sports.

Foreign Policy, Domestic Agenda and ISIS, add them all up and you get a picture of the world that holds less promise than when BHO was elected. With one broken promise after another, we find ourselves on the edge facing a collapse. A collapse of our foreign policy, ability to deal with obvious threats from without all the while creating threats within. So what will it take to change the direction of this behemoth? What do you and I have to do to secure the future and promise of opportunity that the Founders laid at the feet of the earliest of us?
Join me to discuss the things that matter most and to ask the hard questions and disucss the tough answers. Anything that makes a difference, is sure to annoy a liberal.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the show that mixes comics, geekdom, and politics. It's been a bit since our last episode and we're back to cover some of the latest releases as well as conventions. On tap this week is:
Batgirl got a new look, new location, a new status-quo in Batgirl #35. We discuss the change for the character.
Gotham Academy #1 came out and the series attempts to fill a much needed gap in the DC Comics line-up. We talk about the new series' first issue and recent changes for DC.
New York Comic Con recently descended on New York City's Javitts Center. We talk about the convention and the numerous announcement that came out of it.
We'll discuss the above and more in a brand new episode! We want to hear from you too. You can call in with your thoughts, or Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy.
Join Ms Reason and J Floyd as they discuss Domestic abuse. October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month but we feel that everyday is awareness day. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love.

According the Domestic Violence Statistics website, every 9 seconds in the US, a woman is assaulted or beaten, which is 9,000 victims every day. Globally, 1 in every 3 women are beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
Women of Concern Professionals & Strategic Conscious Networking (WOCPSCN) have embraced the critical issue of domestic violence due to its economic and health affects upon our communities. Our intent is to bring attention to this critical issue with our initial “Walking in Silence for the Silenced: Domestic Violence Solidarity Walk.” This Walk of Silence is to unsilence the hidden shame of this world epidemic crisis.
Join me as l talk with WOCPSCN National Board President, Southern California Regional Development Director and Event Coordinator for UCLA, Ronni Savage and her guest from UCLA's 7000 in Solidarity Campaign. This group's desire is to create a safe and inclusive campus for students of all gender expressions and sexual orientations by educating the UCLA campus communiry on sexual assault.
We ask you to participate in global Solidarity on November 1, 2014 at 7:00 am. From groups of two to 2,000, Solidarity Walks can take place in a backyard, a walk around the block to as organized walk in the park, which will take place in Southside Park, Sacramento, CA and on the campus of UCLA.
DO YOU want to initiate a walk in your area? Let's talk.
Domestic Violence from athletes to Judges from all walks of life comes violece againist men and women.
Verbal - Sexual - Physical Abuse
Man Up Pledge: The pledge says "I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. I pledge to learn about how I can help to end violence and discrimination against women and girls and to work towards creating a community where all people are valued and safe.
On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures.
Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for "serious" intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day.
THE COMMUNITY ON ABUSE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RETURNS TO ONE POSITIVE WAY RADIO FOR ANOTHER NIGHT OF AWARENESS. THE TOPIC WILL BE THE PROFILE AND METHODS OF AN ABUSER. WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN THIS PROGRAM AND THE MOVEMENT IT HAS BECOME. TONIGHT WE WILL OPEN THE MIC FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES IN A HEALTHY HEALING MANNER. THIS MAY BE THROUGH TESTIMONY OF HEALING OR PAIN THROUGH ANY FORM OF EXPRESSION. WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR THOSE THAT CHOOSE TO COME FORWARD AND UN SILENCE THE ABUSE & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ONE POSITIVE WAY.
