Join us for a Film & Forum
honoring Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
WHAT: An award-winning short film followed by a panel discussion with community leaders who deal with domestic violence.
WHEN: Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 2:00 – 4:00
WHERE: Murphy-Wilmot Library, 530 N Wilmot Road, Tucson
–This could be an Arizona story–
The film: 5 Awake follows five Louisiana women, outraged over husbands shooting their wives, who set out to strengthen domestic violence laws, including a controversial proposal to restrict the gun rights of domestic abusers. In Louisiana, this was considered lunacy. Not the part about armed abusers. The part about wanting to disarm them. This is the story of what happens when women, armed with passion, pluck and political savvy, wake up and refuse to take no for an answer.
The forum: five community leaders who deal with domestic violence will tell about their work and then accept questions from the audience. They are:
Anna Harper-Guerrero, Exec. VP of Emerge
Assistant Chief Carla Johnson of TPD
Judge Wendy Million of Tucson Domestic Violence Court
Tami Sanchez, Lead Victim Advocate for Pima County Attorney’s Office
Senator David Bradley, representing LD10
