Advocates in Montpelier, Vermont

Wonderful folks at Fort Irwin, California

With Paige Harris Flink at the Dallas Family Place

"Thank you all so much for making last weeks event such a success! Over 200 people attended despite the sudden rain and the feedback we received was fantastic! There were over 30 requests for future screenings, several volunteers to hold house parties, two folks interested in becoming advocates and a number of requests to have Kit come speak at their function. I hope that the film also generated interest in your organizations and the work that you all do."

Hi Kit,
Hope all is well. The feedback from last week’s event has been extremely positive. Students and faculty are talking about it and discussing ways to become more involved with the issue. One class will be doing a health fair at a local high school and relationship abuse will be one of the topics. The student doing the topic was present last week and he was very moved by the issue and the magnitude of the problem and wants to do something to help others!!
