Among UsSaturday, October 8, 2011 2:00PM to 4:00PM October is domestic violence awareness month.
‘Among Us’ is an annual poetry reading and community outreach promoting awareness of domestic violence. Josie Mixon, survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence, once again hosts this year’s event. She is an activist and the author of three books "Reflections of My Battered Life", "Of Flesh and Bone I am Woman Surviving Abuse" and “Off the Beaten Path”. Her work is documented in several publications promoting awareness for all victims and survivors who cannot or will not speak for themselves.
Featured readers at “Among Us” are either survivors of abuse and express their experience through their written work or are a voice for those who have experienced abuse. Dr. Josephine Mendez Negrete author of "Las Hijas De Juan Daughters Betrayed” and a professor at the University of Texas in San Antonio is the honored guest this year. ----------------------------------------- This event is sponsored by: Viva Bookstore and the Peace Initiative & Family Violence Prevention Services.
