Upcoming silent witness feature

Chloe Berge has made a lot of progress with her print feature that will be available here in the next couple of weeks. She has written a draft and will be doing one-on-one editing with feature editor Mark Kearney next week.

For her story, Chloe interviewed Jennifer Morse, who sponsored a silent witness in honor of her mother. A silent witness monument is a free standing, life sized red wooden silhouette with the name of a woman whose life ended at the hands of her abusive partner.

Chloe also interviewed Jennifer Stanley, the college coordinator for the silent witness project in the US, and Megan Walker, the executive director of the London Abused Women’s Shelter who started the first Ontario chapter of the project. Check back soon for the full story.
