March 2015 Newsletter #040
Four weeks of March report.

In March we had 8 meetings. Four at Tomacelli's Pizza, and four in the Conference Room at the Main Public Library. At these meetings we discussed many science subjects and the Anti-Domestic Abuse Initiative billboard campaign which launched March 2th. The physics concept of Deep Time has also become a standard topic and we have been adding events to our Deep Time Table before every meeting. Lots of food for thought for open minds and excellent contributions by all involved.

At the meetings in the Conference Room at the Main Public Library we showed 6 Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence films. These are all educational films, many with instructor's guides. This month we showed: Why Domestic Violence Victims Don't Leave, What Would You Do?, Breaking the Cycle of Abuse, Portrait of Abuse - An American Epidemic, Codependency, Emotional Violence, and Domestic Abuse, and Domestic Violence: Which Way Out? We discussed the films and also any other subjects people attending wanted to discuss which usually included the latest science news.

We have a total of 17 films. We will be showing those related to child abuse over the next 4 weeks. Abuse and Violence against women and children is at epidemic proportions in America. In America every 15 seconds a women is domestically abused, every 45 seconds a women is raped. That is why we sponsored an Anti-Domestic Abuse Initiative starting on March 2nd and lasting for 8 weeks. All 34 panels to be used in this initiative are below:

Child Abuse Billboard: Child Abuse Billboard for National Child Abuse Prevention Month this April

Domestic Abuse Billboards: Premium Digital Anti-Domestic Abuse Billboard on West 12th Street heading up the Anti-Domestic Abuse Initiative

Domestic Abuse Billboards: Sioux Falls Feminists Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence Static and Digital Billboards scheduled for 2015 on South Cliff Avenue

This initiative was a major event for the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers/Sioux Falls Feminists, and for Sioux Falls residents, with 34 billboard panels on 19 billboards starting March 2nd for 8 weeks. You can see the new billboard designs at Anti-Domestic Abuse Billboards and the Flyer at Anti-Domestic Abuse Flyer . You can download the flyer and print it out for distribution to whoever who think would be interested or could use the information on it. You can also get a Lighted Car Top Sign, either large or small, and really get the message out.

The Anti-Domestic Abuse Initiative has more than
doubled the traffic to the Sioux Falls Feminists website!
