Denise Brown speaks to Penn State crowd on domestic violence: ‘It had to take my sister’s life’

“Half of you don’t even have a clue about who we are unless you’ve read about it in a textbook,” Brown said to a crowd of around 200 people on Monday evening. Amid the Generation Y crowd filling the stands were a few Baby Boomers who remembered the O.J. Simpson case like it was yesterday.

In solidarity with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Penn State’s Center for Woman Students hosted Brown, sister of the late Nicole Brown Simpson, Monday night in the Heritage Hall at the Hetzel Union Building. Continue reading

NFL Toughens its Stance on Domestic Violence

(USA TODAY)

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell admits he was wrong on the Ray Rice decision, and Goodell took an important step Thursday towards showing the league is serious about cracking down on domestic violence as well as sexual assault.
