A few years ago, author Paul McComas and singer-songwriter Maya Kuper created Unplugged: A Survivor’s Story in Scenes and Songs. It’s based on Paul’s novel of the same name. The show uses original songs and spoken-word performance to tell the story of Dayna Clay, a fictional 27-year-old rock musician and survivor of sexual assault.

Last year, the number of people who lost their lives to domestic violence in Wisconsin fell -  from 55 to 43. Yet those involved in fighting the problem vow to remain vigilant.

People gathered at Milwaukee City Hall Monday to show solidarity with people still suffering. Each marcher wore an orange t-shirt reading “say no to violence against women.”

They staged a walk for peace downtown and then gathered inside Milwaukee City Hall to remember last year’s victims of domestic violence.  While men’s names are on the list, much of Monday’s gathering focused on women.

Law enforcement officers across Milwaukee County spent the past couple days learning how to better handle cases of domestic violence.

La Causa’s Crisis Nursery and Respite Center, on Milwaukee’s near south side, offers parents a free place to leave their children, in emergency situations.

There appears to be bipartisan consensus, when it comes to strengthening laws for victims of domestic abuse.
