New Day Northwest | KING 5
Su Ring

The fatal shooting in a special needs classroom in San Bernardino, California, has once again turned attention to the issue of domestic violence. On Monday, a gunman gained access to his estranged wife’s elementary school classroom. He shot her and two students who were standing behind her, then took his own life. His estranged wife and one of the students died in the incident.

Even though we can’t know exactly what went on in their specific situation, it’s important to renew the conversation about this type of violence. Rachel Krinsky, Executive Director of the domestic violence advocacy organization LifeWire, joined New Day NW host Margaret Larson to share more about how friends and coworkers may help support someone who is living in an abusive relationship, as well as how a DV victim may reach out for help.

Three.

That’s the number of Americans who will be sexually assaulted by the time you finish reading this post.

As an agency that does not tolerate the use of violence as a tool of oppression, we are outraged by this statistic.

That’s why we’re dedicating our efforts over the next 30 days of April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month to bring to light an issue that affects more than 380,0001 adults and children in our communities every year.

Here’s how.

Introducing LifeWire’s Virtual Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program that started in Massachusetts in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The shirts are then hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others as a testimony to the problem of violence against women. Since its inception, CLP has gained worldwide support and attention.

Throughout the month of April, we’ll be collecting and sharing the stories and testimonies of survivors of sexual violence. Their brave words will be painted on shirts that we will display right here on our website all month long.
