Domestic Violence Project Presents “And So I Stayed”
Join the Domestic Violence Project for a screening of the award-winning documentary “And So I Stayed.” The film follows the stories of three survivors of abuse fighting for their lives and spending years behind bars. Formerly incarcerated survivor-advocate Kim Dadou Brown, who met her wife while incarcerated, is a driving force in the passage of New York’s Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act, a new law meant to prevent survivors from receiving harsh prison sentences for their acts of survival. Nikki Addimando, a mother of two young children, suffered the consequences when a judge didn’t follow the law’s guidelines. Tanisha Davis, a single mother who was imprisoned and separated from her son in 2013, is hopeful the new law is her way out of a harsh prison sentence.
