IN FOCUS: Domestic Violence

Our focus is domestic violence and those in our local communities who are advocating to end it and provide services for those in need of help.

Host Jennifer Lewis-Hall speaks with Ellen Kramer, Director of Program Services from the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence – sharing information on legislation and what is being done on the state level regarding domestic violence. Christine Stutman, Executive Director of nonprofit Lutheran Settlement House, shares their new program initiatives including Children’s Therapy. It is a program for children ages three to eighteen who have witnessed intimate partner violence. And Yasmine Mustafa and Anthony Gold – co-founders of “Athena” – discuss a device that aims to help prevent violence and protect women from assault. In Focus airs Saturdays at 6:30am on PHL17.
