Panel Discussion: Domestic Violence Issues and Resources

The panelist includes Glenn Muschert, professor of sociology; Jennifer carter, instructor in Sociology; Byron Miller, assistant professor of sociology and Black world studies; and Becca Getson, sexual assault response coordinator. These guests are professionals in this field and will discuss the various types of help available for victims of domestic violence and their families.
Film screening: â€œSin by Silenceâ€ (2009)
The second event is a screening followed by a discussion of the award winning documentary â€œSin by Silenceâ€ which was directed by Olivia Klaus. The documentary is an insight of the lives of women who have had to face some of the worst-case scenarios of domestic violence. The film depicts the survivorâ€™s daily lives and struggles of admitting to needing help. Most of the survivors are actually members of Convicted Women Against Abuse created by inmate Brenda Clubine in 1989. The 50-minute documenrary will be followed by a discussion where viewers can talk about the different struggles as well as solutions there are for women in these unfortunate situations.
