This is the 5th in El Refugio’s Men Speak Out Against Domestic Violence series to acknowledge October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
In this final installment, we hear from Deputy Steve Reese, Sam Lowen a retired hospital technician who has seen the victims of domestic violence for decades, John Carter on the staff of El Refugio and Ken Cooper – longtime El Refugio supporter. As the other men that spoke earlier in the series, they have come forward to raise their voices and stand against domestic violence. The violence and harm of this societal deficiency are gut wrenching as are the true stories they relate to us. No less troubling is the pervasive regularity and statistics here in New Mexico. They raise their voices to end this brutal condition and ask that you stand with them and do the same to create a united front against this scourge.
Others in the series are figures well known in the community for their ongoing civic commitments, some have held elective office, deal with DV first hand as law enforcement officers and others are simply citizens, residents, neighbors, family or friends that have seen the pernicious effect of this all too common tragedy and by raising their voices, seek to raise awareness and ask you to also stand and Speak Out Against Domestic Violence.
Please visit their website (http://eridv NULL.org/) to become more familiar with El Refugio, become involved, support their work and – most vitally – turn to them when domestic violence threatens you or a loved one… before tragedy strikes.
The program is scheduled to run Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at approximately 6:30 or 6:45. Or you can click below to listen anytime to this installment of
