Thank you, Heidi Lehmann, for all you do to end violence against women. On May 10, 2012 my sister was murdered and burned by her ex-boyfriend. I began a facebook site and soon made a website for a charity my family is making in my sister's name to help spread awareness to domestic violence and how often it leads to murder. This is a cause every person in the world needs to become a part of. Violence must end.

yup. Heidi speaks truth:# We do need all sectors of the social justice movement(s) to come together.# This is a movement about hope. -- I feel a lot of hope because of the work Heidi does, how she does it, and who she brings.#and also, one thing to add: "It is not ok for women to make less money then men, or face barriers to economic stability" #LookingForward   --Thanks Heidi!
