In the State of Minnesota, services for victims of domestic violence were deemed “essential” by Special Investigator Kathleen Blatz during the state’s government shutdown, and all violent crimes were ranked high priority during the 2011 legislative session when the legislature considered significant funding cuts to court services. That the political will in Minnesota exists to ensure that our criminal justice system is addressing cases of domestic violence is good news.
What Women Are Saying
"We live in a world designed to keep
real at a minimum. Global Room for Women is the first website that I've found (and I've looked) that promotes real conversations between real
people." - B. Samuel, Artist, Iowa.
"The Global Room was life changing for me. I was blown away! I am usually not impressed by these kinds of teleconferences but thought GRW was wonderful. It made me feel not so alone on this planet." - A. Olivier, Texas
"I am trying to find ways to change the world I inherited. The only way is through other people. The GRW feeds that part of me that needs to be opened and wants ideas and mutual experience to face the immense challenges. "
- M.Levy, Activist, Wisconsin
