We Are The Lions

 I want to share with you a provocative and moving short video on domestic violence entitled, “We Are The Lions,” that I recently created and filmed with my partners at Go West Creative. Our goal is this: We want the whole world to share the message that “Violence against women needs to end where it begins… at the hands, in the hearts and in the minds of men.” See below for more details and a link to the video. Please show your support by sharing your thoughts and the link to the video across your social media accounts, along with the hashtag #wearethelions to help raise awareness. Thank you in advance for your time and let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions to help spread this crucial message.

“We Are The Lions” by Steve Connell. Produced by Go West Creative.
