One Voice Walk 2007

One Voice Walk 2007

Have you've been wondering where I've been this past month? I've been doing some online publicity as a New Media Consultant for the 4th Annual One Voice Domestic Violence Community Awareness Walk, which was held in Cincinnati, Ohio this morning. I took lots of pictures and recorded lots of audio from the event.

Hearing personal stories really moved me. I honestly felt a flood of emotions ranging from sadness, outrage, hurt, compassion, and more. It was really a lot to take in. And rightfully so. Domestic violence is an anathema to our society and must be stopped.

I really enjoyed interviewing people from the various local organizations and finding out what they are doing to help raise awareness for and to prevent domestic violence.

During the walk, I talked with other participants. In nearly all the interviews, I asked folks why they came. Really great discussions.

Do a Google search (aka 'google') "onevoicewalk", and you'll find this content as it all becomes available. For now, I encourage you to check out these specific websites: - the official website, with information about how to donate - pictures taken during the event, with more to come - microblog of updates from before, during, and after the event - MySpace page - Journey Inside My Mind Podcast, where audio content from the walk will be posted

Speaking of the Journey Inside My Mind Podcast, head over there for the recent episode, Music for the One Voice Walk.

Daniel, I appreciate your article. Thank you for raising your voice on behalf of battered women. I am a formerly battered woman, and for my part, I have written a book in order to raise awareness of the plight of battered women within the Christian community entitled, "Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence."

I make it a practice to email advocates a pdf copy of book at no charge. If you would like to receive a reveiw copy, please email me at

Have a great day. ~~jocelyn andersen
