Local Domestic Violence Programs Need Support
Community based dometic violence services are at the heart of our nation's response to domestic violence - providing everything from shelter to support groups, legal advocacy, and services to children who have witnessed the violence. Yet in these challenging financial times, funding for these life-saving programs is coming under pressure.
Fourteen years ago, in a desperate action to protect her children from abuse, Holly Collins "went underground" and fled the country with her three young children after the Minneapolis Family Court ruled that they must live with their father, who had fractured Zachary's skull. Now they want to come home - but the Minneapolis District Attorney refuses to drop the charges, and has threatened to try to put Holly in jail and deny her any contact with her now adult children the minute she sets foot on U.S. soil.
