I participated to that conference call that addressed the issue of violence against women, but I did not have a chance to be heard as I had a couple of hot questions. I am a victim of public violence in the US for about 16 years. I have done my best to write government agencies to help me get out of this vicious cycle. I am being abused every minute by the public. This conference call could have been a suitable occasion to lay down the problem that undoubtedly the government is aware of over the years without intervening to resolve the issue. This cycle of abuse started in Washington, DC to follow me and my family all the way to Massachusetts. Can someone help with chanelling my effort to stop it? The White House is launching invitation to receive victims of violence and to help them to recover. I just wanted to regain normalcy.
