TOPEKA, Kan. - As anybody who has followed my writing here on Kansas Free Press or at Everyday Citizen knows, I am a passionate advocate for ending domestic violence. My advocacy stems from my friendship with one of the most amazing women I've ever met, Jana Mackey, whose life was taken much too early by the epidemic of domestic violence that engulfs the world.
In a world where 1 in 4 women will be subjected to some form of domestic abuse, it is hard to find hope. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Here in Kansas, Curt and Christie Brungardt, Jana's parents, have started an organization whose goal is to eliminate domestic violence. While that may seem like a lofty goal, I think we can all agree that it is a worth one.
So, I implore you to join Curt and Christie this Thursday in Topeka for the kickoff press conference for Jana's Campaign to Stop Domestic Violence. Here is the information:
Thursday, December 10, 2009, 10:00 a.m.
YWCA (North Door Entrance)
225 SW 12th Street
