Domestic Violence Awareness Month with Mandie Alto of Advocates for Family Peace

Oct 17, 2019

Domestic Violence affects millions – women, children and men.  Domestic violence effects people of every race, religion, sexual and gender orientation and economic status.

There’s a stereotype that domestic violence is ONLY black eyes and physical violence….it’s also yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation.  Stealing a paycheck, constant texting and so many other methods are used to control others.

In 1994 the Violence Against Women Act was passed – and we’ve come a long way, but not far enough.

Executive Director of Advocates for Family Peace Mandie Alto joined us on the Thursday Morning Show.
