For the past 15 years Denise Brown has been speaking out about the issue ofdomestic violence.
This international epidemic needs to be stopped. Four women die everyday from the hands of
someone they love or are suppose to trust.Let’s put and end to this monster called domestic
violence. Children in homes where domestic violence occurs, may experience cognitive or language
problems, developmental delay,stress-related physical ailments (such as headaches, ulcers, and rashes),and hearing and speech problems.
A major study of more than 900 children at battered women's shelters found that nearly 70 percent
of the children were themselves victims of physical abuse or neglect. Nearly half of the children had
been physically or sexually abused. Five percent had been hospitalized due to the abuse.
Over the years, Denise Brown, has traveled thousands of miles in her effort to raise awareness.
Since domestic violence knows no boundaries, it has taken her around the world.
She has assisted in the success of a major project called the Vine System.
This Program is an automated victim notification
service of the release of batterers from jail or prison.

As part of her commitment to education, Denise Brown has worked to help pass a
variety of legislative solutions on domestic violence. One of the most important projects she took on was to lobby on behalf of the
Violence Against Women Act. Ms. Brown, upon request of Senator Arlen Spector, testified to the
U. S. Senate Appropriations
Committee for increased funding for VAWA. After her testimony, that part of the bill's funding increased from eighteen million
dollars to thirty two million dollars.
