Listen to Tell Me More Jan. 29th Domestic Violence on Campus with Bill Mitchell:
Domestic abuse on campus is common. 40 percent of girls age 14-17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend. “Domestic violence doesn’t have a face or an age,” says Bill Mitchell. “It can happen to anybody.” Since Kristin’s death, the Kristin Mitchell Foundation has supported educational efforts that raise awareness about the dangers of abusive dating relationships.
The Mitchells have also lobbied for a Maryland law that requires mandatory domestic violence education in middle and high schools. For more information about the Foundation or Kristin’s Krusade, an annual fundraiser in her honor visit http://www.kristinskrusade.org/
