After seeking legal advice to end the cyber bullying and stalking that Jody has suffered since speaking out about a wrongful conviction, she utilized her attorney's advice and has since become a survivor. Her story is shared through her blog and book, The Naked Truth Bound in Scorn BoundinScorn.com.

JOCELYN ANDERSON - Author/Speaker

Jocelyn Andersen is an author and speaker who does not take no for an answer. In 2006, after writing a book based on her experience and insights into navigating the minefield of domestic violence, she was ignored by most literary agents and then bluntly told by one that what she had to say needed to be heard, but no Christian publisher would touch her because she challenged the advice and motives of well known and well respected names in the Christian Family media/publishing industry.

Not a problem. Jocelyn started her own publishing company, and since 2007—although finances for promoting her book were slim—Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, has been read by close to 10,000 people. Upon release, its impact was immediate, which gained the book much deserved media attention. Jocelyn continues to receive testimonials to the difference Woman Submit! has made in the lives of those who have read it. Today, free from the oppression of domestic violence, and free to pursue the work and ministry she loves, Jocelyn is the author of five books on a variety of subjects and walks in victory, joy, and forgiveness. She firmly believes that others can do the same.

Through Jesus Christ and the principles found in his word, Jocelyn successfully turned the lemons of domestic violence and professional rejection into lemonade! She is passionate about sharing the hope and help she has found in Jesus while helping others overcome obstacles in their own lives.

Her next book, "Woman this is WAR! Gender, Slavery & the Evangelical Caste System," is scheduled for release in July of 2010.

LINDA RIVERA

Hello, please let me introduce myself, my name is Linda Rivera and I was a victim of domestic violence which culminated with a brutal assault that left me hospitalized with head trauma and a broken bone of which required surgery as well as necessary follow up physical therapy. While the physical scars healed the mental scars have required many years of mental health therapy to rehabilitate the mind.

As a victim, advocate and researcher of domestic violence I have documented that there is indeed a pattern that many of these violent abusers follow. The blueprint of this violent abuser is one who does not take responsibility both personal and financial for their actions. The latter, leaving most domestic violence victims to have to fend for themselves with regard to medical treatment. Quite often the worst effects of this violent act are the long lasting issues that the victim will have in dealing with future relationships, most often dealing with trust. Coupled with this is the fact that our country to this day still has some of the slimmest Domestic Violence laws with regard to protecting the victim. To augment the victim’s quandary, Domestic Violence Organizations and coalitions that are chartered to help victims like myself, offer little or no help which further exasperates the plight of the Domestic Violence victim.

Currently I live in Woodhaven, Queens and am an active volunteer for the only National Domestic Violence Database. This database is the result of the efforts of “The Weaker Vessel Inc.” which was created and is controlled by Myra Spearman. Due to my efforts Myra has asked me to become a board member. As a result I was able to leverage my network of people to attract and contract an independent artist, J-Harris whose song and lyrics fit the cause of Domestic Violence prevention. At this time I can proudly boast that J-Harris is the official spokesperson of The Weaker Vessel. His song “I’ll Make It Up To U” is not only the theme song for the site but it speaks loudly and clearly for any victim who has felt the ire of Domestic Violence or any other type of abusive relationship.

Our database while still in its infancy has a well defined purpose. It is a free comprehensive resource that is now available to the public. Now anyone and everyone can go on-line to see if the person they are dating has been abusive in a past relationship without having to pay expensive court costs or other fees imposed by a third party information broker. Please help us build our database? At this time I am the first person in the New York area to have listed my abuser (Cooper Rego) in the database. This database is vital to the safety of all women and is something that is long overdue. It is based on this that I am appealing for governmental help on the federal level much to the same as “Megan’s Law”.

LINDA MARIE SACKS – Women's Advocate

Linda Marie Sacks is a national advocate speaking out about the National Crisis in the US. There is an injustice is to Mothers and children of Domestic Violence and Child Sexual Abuse who ask the family courts for protection, with documented abuse and sadly are placed on Supervised Visitation or all contact is terminated and batterers are getting custody 70% of the time.


As Co-Chair of the Fl NOW Child Custody and Family Court Committee, the most alarming statistic was from the American Bar Association, regarding Batterers and Child Custody. Batterers ask for Sole Custody in Family Courts and get it 70% of the time. Imagine, a Batterer, a parent , with documented DV and abuse to the child or children, either physical and or sexual abuse to the children, and a Mom files for divorce and enters the family court system to protect her children, 70% of the time the batterer gets unsupervised contact and gets sole physical custody.

DV is on the rise as you know, and Mothers who do stand up to protect their children, often lose their children, because of it, and then the abuser gets custody, and the Mother gets supervised visitation, or loses all contact. This is a national crisis all over the US. I would like to address this very important topic, as Mothers and children who are victims of DV and whose children are victims of child physical and or sexual abuse, are losing custody to the identified abuser, through the family courts and child protective services.

My daughter’s teacher said “if you, of all Mothers, can lose custody of your children, America better wake up, because if you can, anyone can”.

ELIZABETH BACA

Elizabeth Baca is the producer for The Majority United’s blogtalkradio show. Having grown up in a classically abusive home, Liz is helping to ensure that the voices of those like her are heard. Liz does not like to be called a survivor or a victim, she prefers being called a fighter!
As a member of the advisory board for TMU, Liz will be focusing her persistence and patience on making TMU a guiding light and unifying force for all women and children in need. It was hard to get Liz to give us a summary of herself -- she wrote:
“ I’m new to being an activist, so I don’t have any real history at doing this. I feel a bit intimidated with everyone else being founders of groups, speakers, writers, lawyers etc. I’m just me, I want to change things and be involved. The being involved is helping me grow in ways I hadn’t because of my childhood. I don’t use that as an excuse, I guess I just wasn’t ready till now.

I love the arts, I’m a very sympathetic type personality. I listen. I’m the one in the background that makes sure things happen the way they are supposed to. I can be outspoken for those that are in need, but never myself.

In short, no pedigree but dedicated to helping women and children and I would be extremely humbled to be included in such august company.”
I am humbled to know Liz and have her at my side—she is a go getter, a self starter and a hard worker, sincere, forthright, dedicated and trustworthy. And most of all Liz is loyal!
