#ItsOnUs to #EndPrivateViolence
Sunday night at the 2015 GRAMMY awards, President Obama’s powerful #ItsOnUS statement affirmed the national commitment to ending domestic violence and sexual assault by putting the plight of rape and abuse victims front and center. Nearly 1 in 5 women in the U.S. have experienced rape or attempted rape, and more than 1 in 4 have suffered some kind of domestic violence. Now available to educators, activists, law enforcement, and domestic violence advocates is the gripping film PRIVATE VIOLENCE, a feature-length documentary that sheds light on the issue of domestic violence. This film and the subsequent dialogue is the urgent response needed to address the nation’s domestic violence problem.
