AKA Shows Domestic Violence Awareness Film

Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sponsor a screening of "Sin by Silence," a domestic violence awareness documentary, Thursday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center.

The film highlights the stories of several domestic violence survivors, showing how they chose to deal with the abuse. "Many people are affected by domestic violence. Every 9 seconds a woman is abused," said AKA member Cheyenne Brown. "It's sad that there are more shelters for animals than there are for domestic violence victims. We wanted to shed light on this epidemic and help victims gain justice and a support system."

This film is free and open to the public but may not be suitable for children. For more information, contact Brown at .
