On this episode of the NNLM Discovery podcast, Region 3’s Community Engagement Coordinator, Margie Sheppard, discusses a new program funded over the last year called Claire’s Community, which is trying to inform and educate the public about relationship violence. Margie interviews Shannon VanLandingham, Claire’s mother and executive Director of #BeMoreLikeClaire. Although this story is born of tragedy and discusses Claire’s murder, this story leads to a discussion about building healthy, respectful, and nonviolent relationships. This is a positive story of hope and resilience.
