Community Partner Presentation: PRIVATE VIOLENCE

Community Partner Presentation

Presented by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians’ Victim Services Program and the Manistee Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Response Team. Part of October National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

PRIVATE VIOLENCE explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the U.S., at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask: “Why doesn’t she just leave?”

PRIVATE VIOLENCE shatters the brutality of this logic. Intimate partner violence is complicated, and this film takes a brave step to foster education, support, empathy, and understanding.
