How YOU Can Become a #DV Advocate

25 Sep

So many of you have reached out to me to ask how YOU can help save lives of the many victims of domestic violence in your communities. For that, I’m truly grateful. Thank you so much!

I believe that it is time to mobilize our communities to make a real difference for women whom are suffering in silence. In order to do that, we must ACT. Because of my involvement in the Drew Peterson murder trial, I’ve received a lot of media attention, and I’m using it for good.

My desire is for every church in the country to be a safe place for abused women. In order for that to happen, we must have a plan, and pastors and parishioners must respond appropriately to the plan so that abuse victims get the real assistance they need.

The Evidentiary Affidavit of Abuse was created in response to the disappearance of Stacy Peterson. The goal was to eliminate the “hearsay” that Drew Peterson’s team claimed (unsuccessfully) was not legitimate evidence of Drew’s guilt. I’d love it if all of you would go to http://documenttheabuse.com and read about the Evidentiary Affidavit of Abuse. It will bring offenders to justice more quickly than Drew Peterson. It will also empower women and help them to get back their voices. I’ve used it repeatedly in my own church with incredible results. Not one woman has been killed since we started to use this incredible tool.

My goal is for churches and other concerned members of the community to learn to use this tool, but then to offer temporary safe families for victims of domestic violence. If just 5 families in each church in the nation would step up to this challenge, all 1.3 million victims of abuse would be safe from their attackers.

There are many domestic violence shelters out there that are doing tremendous work. But they need more people to step up and do the same kind of work that they are doing. They aren’t funded well enough to do it all, and they need our help.

Here’s where all of you come in: you are all influencers in your respective communities. I need you to share this plan with people that you see each day. As you do this, some will be interested in partnering, and some won’t. The ones that are interested will be trained appropriately, and will start saving lives with us.

If this is something that you are interested in doing, please email me and let me know what YOUR target audience will be. Be specific! If you want to contact churches…tell me WHAT churches and WHERE. We must be clear so that we don’t contact the same people over and over. Make sense? Thank you all so very much!

Breaking the Silence,

Neil Schori

P.S. Please forward this to anyone else that you think may be interested.

    Good Morning Pastor Neil! As I write this on October 1st, this video is an excellent brief tutorial against the backdrop of Stacey Peterson’s memory and the fine work you are doing on behalf of Susan… I hope this is distributed far and wide! Can it be put on YouTube perhaps??

    Yes, I am interested in every opportunity to bring help to the hurting. Whether it is domestic violence or crimes against children the need in both areas are great in our country. I have been thinking about this for sometime now and believe adding it to my investigations and ministry would be a tremendous advantage to those in need.
