The evening began with spokesperson for Domestic Violence Survivor Estika Halley, Ms. Yvette Halley shared a few words from Estika who is currently on a campaign to speak up for victims of Domestic Violence who are or have been silenced due to death. Ms. Halley spoke concerning Estikaโ€™s campaign slogan, the meaning behind her blue butterfly symbol, and her favored quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. which includes a strong message about having a voice and not being silenced.
The highlight of the evening was guest speaker and Forensic Psychologist, Ms. Zoya Hyman who delivered a presentation to the audience on the cycle of abuse and the importance of understanding what a healthy person and a healthy relationship look like versus an unhealthy person and an unhealthy relationship.
Iโ€™d like to thank Ms. Gracita Arrindell and the members of the Priodot Foundation for their continued efforts over the years to educate the community and support women and children in unsafe circumstances. I also acknowledge the Chief of Police, Mr. Carl John, CPO Felix, and Officer S. Richardson for also being in attendance representing the Ministry of Justice, specifically KPSM who are the first responders to the calls of the community.
