Speaking Engagements

In October, 2013, Peggy Luplow, subject of our first film, "Peggy's Story" spoke in Clayton and Raton, New Mexico and presented our first two films. The first involved her own experience leaving an abusive marriage to rebuild her life and our second film, "Cheyanne's Story" that deals with teen and date violence.  These two communities  observe Domestic Violence Awareness Month each year with a moving Candlelight Vigil along with the help of: local school's cheerleaders and glee clubs; monetary award presentations by the Kiwanis; the Professional Women's Association; local law enforcement; and proclamations by their respective Mayor's Office.  Peggy spoke of the amazing similarities between "Cheyanne's Story" and her own, even though the situations of abuse occurred over 30 years apart, in two completely different cultures with close to 1,000 miles separating them - the guilt, struggles, fear and hope expressed were the same.  The showing was so well received and highly valued that a prominent teacher, attending from a nearby town, immediately requested that the two films be presented to his entire student body.  If you would like to arrange for Peggy to speak at your community event please contact us.

DVD and User Guide Available for "Cheyanne's Story"

We are pleased to share that "Cheyanne's Story" along with the accompanying "A Teacher's Story" is available on line.  For schools and groups that want to use the film to lead discussions and not stream it from the web, DVD's and UserGuides are available free of charge.  A huge thank you to teacher Glenda De Paula and school counselor LInda Esquibel for helping with the User Guide.
