Missouri Screenings Make a Difference

Jan 23rd, 2010 In: Latest News & Updates Sin by Silence Tour By: Comments 0

Along our Stop the Violence Tour, we had two screenings in the town of Springfield, MO.  Springfield is located in Greene County which has seen, from 2005 to 2008, domestic violence cases rose from 118 calls to 242…an increase of 205 percent over four years. Domestic violence is a major crisis in that area, and it was an honor to be a part of making a difference through bringing Sin by Silence to that community.

Yet, there is even more of a difference being made by the announcement of the local Police Department adding domestic violence detective with stimulus money and a grant from the Violence Against Women Act. I’d like to think we were part of helping spark this change in the Springfield community!
