Each year, thousands of Coloradans, men and women, are victims of domestic violence. They're abused by their husbands or wives, boyfriends or girlfriends.
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, KVNF’s Laura Palmisano bring us the story of a survivor.
Miriam is 25 years old.
Born in Mexico, she came to the U.S. with her parents when she was 11.
She lived in Las Vegas before moving to Colorado two years ago.
