Telling Amy’s Story Documentary Screening at Harper College on Oct 9, 2013

Telling Amy’s Story produced by Penn State Broadcasting and funded by the Verizon Foundation, tells the story of Amy Homan-McGee, 33 year-old, mother of two who was killed by her husband in 2001 when she decided to leave him after suffering years of abuse.

The victim’s parents and co-workers, law enforcement officers and court personnel share their perspectives on what happened to Amy in the weeks, months, and years leading up to her death.

The producers of the video hope that while they will never be able to change the ending to Amy’s story, that it’s telling can change the outcomes for the millions of victims, survivors, and loved ones affected by domestic violence every day.

The Northwest Suburban Alliance on Domestic Violence and Harper College’s Human Service Program are screening this video to create awareness during domestic violence awareness month in October.

The screening is open to the public and will be on Oct. 9, 2013 from 4:30pm to 6:30p.m. at Harper College located at 1200 W Algonquin, Palatine Illinois, in Theater J143. Tickets are free with online registration at
