WELCOME TO... THE STREETS DON'T LOVE YOU BACK

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Join us 10/20/2016 with guest speakers Julia Gusse, April Mae Macek, Henry Wade and Grace Scott as they share testimonies and knowledge about domestic violence. Nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have suffered from domestic violence by an intimate partner. All people deserve to feel safe with loved ones. Take a stand against domestic violence.

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.

Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

Bobbi’s daughter Kaity met a man and fell in love. He seemed polite, respectful and caring towards Kaity. Over the months she grew to care deeply for this young man and experienced her first love beyond the family. About six months into the relationship this young man began to change. He suddenly became rude and inconsiderate at times, but apologetic when Kaity would stand her ground. This young man exhibited possessive and jealous behavior. If Kaity was away from him he constantly called or would text her on her phone. At times he made accusations that she was lying to him or cheating on him with another. If she went away to visit family he was crazed out of his mind about where she was and who she was with. Kaity patiently tried to understand his insecurities and shortcomings and forgave him. Nonetheless, his behavior escalated. After several months of enduring this behavior, with the support of her family and friends, Kaity came to realize she was not able to help him understand her devotion to him and ended the relationship. He began stealing from her, assaulting her and threatening her. On January 28, 2008, five days after filing the Injunction Against Harassment (IAH), as Kaity was walking on her way home from school this young man grabbed her from in front of her house and pulled her to the side yard of the house next door. He then killed her with a shot gun he had hidden in a duffle bag, and turned the gun on himself and committed suicide.

Christina says, "By the time I was 16, I was raped by my boyfriend. He felt that he needed to teach me a lesson".
