The Mission Doesn't End With Sharing

Domestic violence survival stories like Kerry's not only need to be shared, they also need to be studied. That way change can be enacted on a personal and policy level. 

This donated copy of She Can Fly is going out to the Institute for Family Violence Studies at FSU's College of Social Work. According to their website, "the Institute strives to contribute to effective responses to the devastation caused by family violence. [They] work to do this by conducting research that increases the knowledge base about interventions that work, providing technical assistance and training for service providers and advocates, and serving as a resource for professionals as well as the general public seeking information."

Hopefully Kerry's account of the absolutely devastating nature of abuse will shine a light on the victim mentality and aid the Institute in their mission.
