On today’s special episode we address two important October awareness initiatives: Respect Life and Domestic Violence. Mike Walsh opens the show with a reflection on Respect Life Month, what this resource really means and how important it is for both the Right to Life movement and many social justice enterprises. Then Mary McCusker and Mike hear from two Catholic Charities staff members who, over the decades, have continually served both victims of domestic violence and perpetrators. Listen to Sylvia Loumeau, MSW, LCSW who serves as Catholic Charities’ Director of Clinical Services, and Jose Sanchez, Program Director in Catholic Charities in Camden County. Sylvia and Jose take an in-depth look at the realities of domestic violence: what exactly it means, the many forms it takes, and the nuances, complexities, and misconceptions surrounding it, especially as domestic violence cases have increased during the pandemic. If you or anyone you know may be experiencing domestic violence or abuse, there is help.
