Domestic Violence

Hi There,

Along with many folks my age I have been watching the news regarding Chris Brown and Rhianna with a jaded sense of "here we go again, another classic case of domestic violence playing itself out in the media."  Then the other night I heard a truly terrifying statistic – a poll of 200 Boston area teens revealed over half of them believed that Rhianna was at fault.

Domestic violence is real and the victims are NOT at fault . Oprah (no guys, I don’t watch her someone told me about it) had a good show on this last week. 

If you are a victim of domestic violence here are some useful links where you can find help:

Massachusetts has an excellent violence protection statute too.

May you never need these links,

Best,

Nancy
