Join SafeHouse Center for a film and discussion about intimate partner abuse. This event will feature a segment from the television show “Inside Evil with Chris Cuomo,” titled Till Death Do Us Part, which portrays the horrific experience of local resident Nicole Beverly with intimate partner abuse.
Three women a day are killed by a former or current husband or boyfriend. Nicole Beverly is desperately trying to avoid that fate. When she met her husband in college he was a football star and they were in love. She never imagined the relationship would turn violent and he would end up holding a gun to her head. Kevin is in prison for his violent attacks on her. Now his release date is coming up and a judge will decide if he should go free. Cuomo follows Nicole as she goes through the court system, trying frantically to keep him behind bars. If he gets out, she is convinced he will kill her...so she is prepared to go on the run and into hiding with her two sons. Cuomo goes inside the epidemic of intimate partner violence that can turn lethal for so many women. This segment is unrated but may contain material suited for mature audiences. Nicole Beverly, SafeHouse Executive Director Barbara Niess-May, and a local law enforcement official will follow the film with a panel discussion about partner abuse.
This event is in partnership with SafeHouse Center. If you are experiencing abuse, call the SafeHouse helpline 24/7 at 734-995-5444.
