Domestic Violence Awareness Month

I had to sign this confidentiality agreement before speaking to a room of domestic violence survivors. All month, I’ve been heading to shelters in the Urban Resource Institute (URI) network throughout NYC, reading from The Man Curse, and conducting the workshop I created based on my novel. This can only happen after signing the confidentiality agreement below that promises to never reveal the location of any shelter. Imagine being in a relationship that ends with you having to hide from the one you love? #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth

October is #DomesticViolence Awareness Month. I’m looking forward to working with Urban Resource Institute (URI) again this month, heading to shelters, reading from #TheManCurse, empowering, inspiring, and motivating DV survivors through literature and therapy. If you know of anyone in need, or are a victim yourself, please reach out for help and call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233.
