Domestic violence is one of the most troubling physical crimes in our country, and in society as a whole. A victim of domestic violence waits until they've been hit an average of 35 times before filing a police report. Children are affected by domestic violence even if they are not present. They hear the violence and see the aftermath. They unfortunately also learn that threats and violence get you what you want. The question to answer is why the abuser batters, not why the victim stays. The Brenda Blackmon Project, based in Lee's Summit, has made it their mission to do their part in bringing awareness to domestic violence, and try to bring an end to it. We aim to help victims of domestic violence, including people who have been through it in the past and those dealing with it currently.
MISSION: To teach avoidance by presenting the stage play, Liviing In The Black. To educate and engage the public by creating "Just Stop The Violence" PSA's. To build Three Safe Place Shelters in the Missouri area.
The six Angulo brothers were locked in their New York apartment for 14 years. They're every move and thoughts were controlled by the their father. When they finally break through and learn what the world has to offer, it's heart pleasing. Abuse is cruel and when it's consistent, our human nature says NO!!
In addition to donations from larger companies, The Brenda Blackmon Project also accepts any forms of monetary aid from independent and individual sources as well. As with any large-scale problem, even small gestures can have a large impact, and make a big difference.
