Just in case you haven’t been reading, here’s a few more details about the “Gravity of Abuse”:

A young woman, fearful for her life and that of her baby, flees from the baby’s abusive father. But like many young mothers escaping domestic violence, she has now here to go.  Brandy’s story is captured by Real Change Assistant Editor Rosette Royale in a new multimedia project called “Gravity of Abuse.”  Nearly two years in the making, this dramatic four-part series is the result of Rosette’s 2010 Seattle University Journalism Fellowship on Family Homelessness.  The series began in Real Change May 9.

We hope to see you there!
