Levingston will read from the book and lead a discussion about what the stories of marginalized mothers have to teach us about our society and about ourselves.Ms. Levingston is a PhD candidate and instructor in the Department of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Domestic Violence Advocates Respond to Governor Walker’s NFL Protest Comments

Madison — In response to the Governor’s recent letter to the NFL and the NFL Players Association, Executive Director of End Domestic Abuse WI Patti Seger issued the following statement:

“We are deeply grateful for the support the anti-domestic violence movement has received from Governor Walker, the Governor’s Council on Domestic Violence and from the Green Bay Packers. We also maintain that the NFL should both take a stand against domestic violence and that players should continue using their voices and earned platforms to bring attention to the racial inequality that exists in our country. Speaking out against racial injustice doesn't take away from the effort to end domestic violence; it is part of the solution. Players and other community members who look beyond themselves to support those who are vulnerable to unequal treatment demonstrate the type of attitude we need to end domestic abuse here in Wisconsin and all across the United States.”

End Domestic Abuse WI is the statewide voice for survivors of domestic violence and the membership organization representing local domestic violence victim service providers throughout the state.

We strive to shift Wisconsin from the attitudes and beliefs that cause domestic violence to values of mutual respect and equality, and we partner with communities in the effort to prevent and end domestic abuse.
We encourage reporters to include the National Domestic Violence Hotline number [1−800−799−SAFE(7233)] in their stories for victims who need help.  A list of local Wisconsin domestic violence victim service providers can be found at
