New York, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2011
Author Tiffany Johnson takes a stand against domestic violence. The former victim is set to release her first intimate memoir Enough Is Enough: This Is My Story. The book release and signing will commence on Saturday April 16th, 2011 at Roy Arias Studios, located at 300 West 43rd Street suite 401C @ 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10036 at 3pm. Over 100 advocates and supporters are scheduled to attend this event.
“My 4 year old son was almost the witness of my attempted murder,” says Tiffany Johnson. In her memoir she is quite candid; Tiffany talks about the violent beatings, her experience in Safe Horizon domestic abuse shelters, the visits to Rikers Island and the day that she was left for dead lying in a pool of blood. Unlike 70% of women in domestic violence situations, Tiffany survived and is now sharing her story to help women worldwide. “I found Enough Is Enough to be quite moving. Going through Tiffany’s book took me on a roller coaster ride. Several times, I caught myself wiping away my tears and biting my nails,” says Carmen Garcia of New Mexico City.
Domestic violence is an epidemic. The daily news headlines in New York City continues to report recent crimes, including the case of former NYC police officer Eddy Coello, indicted for the murder of his wife Tina Adovasio. In 2010 the New York City Police Department responded to 249,440 domestic violence incidents; this averages to over 680 reported incidents per day. In addition, NYPD’s Domestic Violence Unit conducted 67,761 home visits in 2010, a 77% increase since 2002. On average, more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners in the US every day.
Enough Is Enough: This Is My Story, is certainly a solution to this epidemic that plagues our nation. This book is a must read for women, men and families whose lives have been affected by domestic violence.
10% of all event proceeds and book sales will be donated to Child Abuse Prevention Program; an independent non-profit child safety workshop that speaks directly to children about the prevention of physical and sexual abuse. And P.O.W.E.R.S. INC., a nonprofit organization providing restorative services to individuals who have been victimized by domestic violence.
