132: Ensure Justice: Principle and Practice

The Ensure Justice Conference is GCWJ’s annual educational collaboration.  March 2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of Ensure Justice and the theme will be to “Build a Strong Child.” The question is how do we reduce the risk for kids and take preventative action against the rapidly growing industry of pornography and sex trafficking. The real secret to prevention is resiliency. To make “ensuring justice” the principle and the practice a highly valued aspect of fighting trafficking we have to make the story about resilience important. Collaboration happens at Ensure Justice when people get together to understand the value of advocating against human trafficking. Proverbs 31:8, “Be a voice for those that have no voice; ensure justice for those being crushed.” Ensure Justice conference will be focusing on building strong children in our community, around schools, and globally.

131: RAAP – Pornography: Fantasy or Reality

In this episode, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak discuss the link between pornography and sex trafficking. Sandie Morgan did a webinar with the Religious Alliance Against Pornography to investigate this link which is an issue that most people can agree on. Pornography drives the demand for trafficking and is closely linked to the prosperity of the sex trafficking. The genre of pornography has become increasingly more violent as the appetite of viewers has become more demanding for more variety, and younger victims. The general public needs to understand the ramifications of this type of abuse on young people, for those involved in the production and for those consuming the pornography products as a sex education resource. Pornography is NOT a victimless crime- how can we protect our children?

Success of Life Without Parole Showing

lwop2016-001-photo-by-susie-sprinkel-hudson-copy  lwp-a-copy lwp-b-copy

Life Without Parole was sold out on its last weekend at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica! The audiences were captivated and moved by the experience, many stayed and engaged in following conversations. Written by Warren Doody and Directed by Susan Berkompas, this play is a tribute to the late Dr. Elizabeth Leonard who devoted her work to telling the hidden story of abused women.

In the mid-1990s, Dr. Elizabeth Dermody Leonard entered the gates of the California Institution for Women at Chino with the purpose of interviewing forty-two women serving long sentences for killing their abusive partners. The result of this research was Dr. Leonard’s book, Convicted Survivors: The Imprisonment of Battered Women Who Kill. Ten years later, playwright Warren Doody transformed this work into Life Without Parole, a play that tells the story of Helen Broker as she faces a parole board hearing for the first time, and who takes the audience on a journey through the tragic underworld of domestic violence.
