A Note from Tracy Schott, founder, Voices4Change — On the April 5 episode of the Voices4Change Radio show we had the opportunity to introduce our followers to Kristen Troken, a survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The topic of today’s show: Understanding re-traumatization through the criminal justice system for survivors of gender-based violence.
About Kristen: A survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault, Kristen is now a proactive advocate working on behalf of women who had similar experiences. As a named plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit against the city and county that failed her, Kristen brings a positive change in her local community. When she’s not balancing professional life, virtual learning, and advocacy, you will find her at the park chasing her 6-year-old son Liam.
About Voices4Change: With the goal of ending intimate partner violence, Tracy’s documentary “Finding Jenn’s Voice” brought to light the horrifying fact that one of the leading causes of death during pregnancy is homicide. Determined to stop the international devastation, the Pennsylvania-based entrepreneur has launched a weekly podcast/video series to shine a light on the survivors and experts worldwide who are working toward the same goal.
