Susan Still’s husband, in an explosive rage, screamed at her for more than 51 minutes. He called her stupid 23 times, but that wasn’t enough for him. He continued to scream at her as he beat her and strangled her on their bed in front of their two young children. Most domestic violence like this plays out behind closed doors, so how do we know all of these details? The abuser forced their 12 year old son to record the abuse on a video camera.  That video was then played by the abuser for the family during dinner, occasionally pausing to point out Susan's flaws, mocking her while justifying his brutal behavior.

In December 2004, Susan’s husband was found guilty on multiple charges for these horrific crimes and a judge handed him a 36-year prison sentence - the longest sentence given for the crime of domestic violence that didn't result in the death of the victim. Susan believes that telling her story will bring more awareness about domestic violence, and she has dedicated her life to this cause. Since his conviction, she has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20 with Diane Sawyer and has gained national recognition among groups that campaign against violence against women.

Guests at our 2019 Women Who Care Share luncheon will hear more about Susan’s journey and the impact her efforts are having on domestic violence survivors across the country. Our Women Who Care Share luncheon is an opportunity for community leaders to come together in support of survivors and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in our community. This luncheon has grown year after year into one of our biggest and most successful events, meaning we need you there to stand against violence at this year’s event. You may attend as an individual guest or as a table host and further your impact by inviting others to join you. While there is no ticket price you will be asked to give a tax-deductible donation of $100 or more. Funds raised at this event provide emergency shelter, counseling, advocacy and more free of charge to victims in our community.
