Domestic Violence Survivors – “Thrivers” Share Their Stories

Three inspiring and courageous women recently visited our studios to share their personal stories of survival.  Each of them offered insight into the darkness of intimate partner violence.

We want to thank the Thrivers Action Group, a local non-profit committed to educating our community and raising public awareness about domestic violence, for making this series possible and introducing
all of us to our guests:

  • Carissa Daniels – Domestic Violence Cyberadvocate
  • Trese Todd – Co-founder of the Thrivers Action Group
  • Courtney Weaver – Seattle Singer and Songwriter

On October 15th, 2013 the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence hosts a  Survivor’s Recognition Day Celebration

This series was produced at KBCS.   Yuko Kodama and Ruth Bly

Domestic Violence Awareness

The first major global review of violence against women was released earlier this month by The World Health Organization. It found that about a third of women worldwide have been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner.

Here in Washington, 755 people have died in domestic violence fatalities since 1997.  Programs say the demand for domestic violence services is increasing, but budgets for them are being cut.

Today, we talk about domestic violence.  How do we identify it?  How can we help our loved ones if they reach out to us, and how do we prevent violence in the home?
