B5 A5 Know 2tes Qhz inge Tanya Brown speaks on preventing domestic violence P i i Iff- 1 ev il -i Trent BatesUVU Review Tanya Brown, ex-sister-in-law to O.J. Simpson, is committed to educating communities about violence. L . JESSICA BURNHAM News writer Tanya Brown,ex-sister-in-law to O.J. Simpson, came to the Ragan Theater on March 10 to speak regarding the issue of domestic violence.Brown was directly affected by domestic violence on June 12, 1994, when her sister Nicole Brown Simpson was viciously murdered. Inspired by Nicole's memory, Tanya and her family established The Nicole Brown Foundation, which is dedicated to educating the community on domestic violence. UVU students also took advantage of the opportunity to learn from self-defense instructor Michael May's years of expertise. May has dedicated his life to ensuring that his daughter and other women "will never be a thirty-second blurb on the news. "One in three women in the United States will be assaulted by an intimate partner in adult life," said Brown. "More women have been killed as a result of domestic violence in the past five years than lives were lost in the Vietnam War." Although women are the primary victims, The National Institute of Justice estimates that 1.5 million women and 850 thousand men are beaten each year, "And these are only the documented cases," said Brown. Another category of victim that Brown said must be accounted -for is children. "Kids hear everything," said Brown. "They don't sleep through their parent's arguments. They have their little ears to the wall and sometimes they'll hide in the closet and other times they'll try 4o intervene, and that's where child abuse originates." Domestic violence can ruin a child's life in a number of other ways. Brown said that specifically 63 percent of young men between the ages of 1 1 and 20 serving time for homicide killed their mother's abuser. Brown stressed the importance of aiding women with children in getting out of abusive relationships. She urged audience members to be proactive in helping others overcome domestic violence, saying that those who remain apathetic are "the silent killers." Utah has the second largest domestic violence rate in the country. There are 16 domestic violence shelters in Utah which offer free group therapy and valuable information to victims.

It would be the largest mathematical geometric structure ever to be built.

UVU Review had the opportunity to sit down with Brown and ask about domestic violence and her personal views on the O.J. Simpson case. What's your main message to UVU students? Emotional abuse. So many times we educate the community on physical abuse, but it's the emotional stuff that's important because that's where it all starts. My goal is to reach out to the audience of where it all starts and where it can end. I'm a firm believer of prevention. If we can recognize the hidden dangers of where it all starts, then that stuff might still happen, but at least there's an awareness that this isn't right. Was your family shocked that Nicole, your sister, had been a victim of domestic violence? Were there signs? I was very young at the time so I didn't know' anything. From hearing Denise my sister in the court trial, she did witness domestic violence. At that time we didn't know what domestic violence was. We just thought See TANYA A2 .
