Crazy Love

by Rachel L. West, MSW, LMSW
The Political Social Worker

In Crazy Love, Leslie Morgan Steiner shares her experience as a Domestic violence survivor. This is an incredible video that explains the patterns of domestic violence and how someone can find it difficult to leave an abusive relationship.

Just a reminder that the House GOP allowed the Violence Against Women Act to expire over a year ago. Let your member of Congress know you want VAWA reauthorized by calling, writing and, if possible, scheduling an in-district visit.
