Local Motion: V-Day

Feb 25, 2015

The Blue Sage in Paonia presented a new play by Eve Ensler in February called “A Memory, A Rant, A Monologue and A Prayer” –   a collection of short stories and poems about women and men who struggle with violence.   The directors of the play, Amber McDaniel and Sunshine Knight talk about the issues explored in the play.

On this week's Local Motion we are observing Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

There’s an art project on display at the Montrose Library that seeks to bring awareness to domestic violence.

Hilltop’s Tri-County Resource Center created the exhibit for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

It features a mannequin wearing a vintage wedding dress that was donated by a victim of domestic violence.

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.
