National Network To End Domestic Violence: Vote The Pepsi Refresh Project!

Friday, January 7th, 2011

The National Network to End Domestic Violence began more than 15 years ago when a group of victim advocates united to promote federal legislation on domestic violence.  As the years went on, the mission grew to dozens of state-wide groups and coalitions across the U.S. 

Today, NNEDV continues to provide training and assistance to end domestic violence through education and technology and now they are trying to get Amy’s Courage Fund, another mission to help victims of domestic violence get back on their feet. 

There is currently a $250,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project to help Amy’s Courage Fund and NNEDV.  Sadly, the funds for Amy’s Courage Fund were depleted and shut down in Nov. 2010.

The goal is to continue helping domestic violence victims across America, please cast your vote today!

Jennifer kesse-million-dollar-flyer-jenn-kesse

Investigators in Orlando, Florida desperately need your leads to find Jennifer Kesse.  A few days ago, authorities announced to the Kesse family that they have exhausted all credible leads in this four year old case.  Although investigators deem the case “active,” they have nothing more to move on at this time.  Jennifer’s family will not give up until she is found dead or alive.

BACKGROUND: Police say Jennifer didn’t show up for work at Central Florida Investments on January 24, 2006. Early on in this investigation, her family told me that it was unlike her not to call if she was going to be late, or if something came up. Her boyfriend thought it was odd that he had not heard from Jennifer that morning on her way to work, and when he called her office, they said she had never arrived. Police responded to her condo to find nothing out of the ordinary. Later that afternoon, Jennifer’s friends and family sprung into action by canvassing the area with fliers looking for their loved one.

Remembering Phoebe Prince
Remembering Phoebe Prince

Attorneys are expected to enter not guilty pleas today for three teens charged for bullying 15-year-old Phoebe Prince.  The teen committed suicide earlier this year after she was allegedly targeted and bullied relentlessly for months.  Nine teenagers, seven females and two males, are all facing a variety of charges including statutory rape, criminal harassment, violation of civil rights and disturbing a school assembly resulting in bodily injury.  This past Tuesday, three other teens entered not guilty pleas for their roles in this alleged crime.  Those suspects are scheduled to appear back in court on September 15, 2010.

Phoebe took her life on January 14, 2010 after she was allegedly bullied inside her South Hadley High School in Massachusetts and online.  Many reports indicate that administrators and staff of the school knew about the bullying and abuse, but did nothing to help.  Phoebe’s aunt even visited the school before her arrival from Ireland and told them about her bullying experiences overseas, and how they should be aware that her niece was susceptible to this type of abuse.  Reports indicate the teachers and administrators may have even witnessed physical abuse, and had full knowledge about the situation, but turned their heads to the situation.
