Thank you. This award honors the women and children who have suffered and those who have lost their lives because of domestic violence.

Thanks so much to our co-producer Stacey Kabat and to our colleagues who worked so hard on "Defending Our Lives." And special thanks to the brave women whose names, voices, and faces made this film come to life. Thank you so much.

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States. Please, we need all your help to stop this.
