Live Free without Violence

#MN, #LiveFreeWithoutViolence, #advocate,

This year, the first ever  Live Free Without Violence Rally was held in the grassy rotunda (lower mall) between the State Capitol building and the Veteran Service Center. This rally was designed to bring awareness to issues surrounding Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

Before marching to the capital, those rallying were invited to make signs, observe artistic performances and participate in policy discussions. My team took the opportunity to learn more about:

  • Coerced Reproduction
  • Issues Surrounding new Child Protective Services protocols, and
  • Body Cameras.

Hopefully over the next few weeks, I can share with you all more of what we learned, but for now… here’s the rally. 12278949_829835127123248_451450108615293866_n
