Join the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and REEL SOUTH for a special screening of the award winning documentary PRIVATE VIOLENCE followed by a conversation with Kit Gruelle (featured subject) and Ruth Glenn (Executive Director, NCADV).
About PRIVATE VIOLENCE
With at least four women murdered each day by abusive (and often, ex) partners, a woman in America is most in danger in her own home. Witness the complex realities of intimate partner violence through the eyes of two survivors: Deanna Walters, a mother seeking justice for her estranged husband’s crimes against her, and victims’ advocate Kit Gruelle. Executive produced by Gloria Steinem.
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is the voice of victims and survivors and works as the catalyst for changing society to have zero tolerance for domestic violence. NCADV does this by affecting public policy, increasing understanding of the impact of domestic violence, and providing programs and education that drive change.
