Working Against Domestic Violence

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.


This newly created project will be accepting donations and assistance from any and all major organizations who wish to join the fight against domestic violence. All of the funds which The Brenda Blackmon Project takes in will be used to organize and promote panel discussions regarding domestic abuse, as well as stage play productions which will visually promote awareness on the topic. These presentations are designed to raise money for shelters for beaten and abused women and also to fund counseling for abusers. Funds will also be used for circle surveys which will help find solutions.
