Information from Stop Family Violence:
Hi All –
I’ve just been contacted by a producer at a major media outlet who is looking to do a story on moms who have lost custody to an abuser who was rich and/or well-connected and/or powerful. (perhaps he was a cop, a lawyer, a judge, a psychiatrist, a corporate exec, etc)
At a minimum the story will be published online on a site w/high visibility to women. Possibly leading to placement on morning news program or other court related TV programming. The journalist is willing to do interviews in shadow and/or use pseudonyms to protect identify if needed.
Tight deadline- need by today if possible, Friday if necessary.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
First Name (required)
Last Name (optional)
BRIEF (approx 500 words) description of your situation that includes the following
How long you were together
His position of privilege/power – was he a cop? A judge? A corporate exec? Etc..
1-3 examples of how he abused you or your children
Summary of what happened when you went to court – how much money you/he spent, whether you/he had attorneys, any egregious thing that happened by the judge, the evaluator, etc.
The outcome – who has custody now? What is your life like?
Please keep the above scenario as brief as possible –
