CROWDRISING SINCE: Nov 20, 2012
Stuff About Me:
Here is a bit of my history. I am a 49 year old DV survivor. I was married to a man who beat me for five years. During that time I gave birth to my daughter Maggie. That's when my ex got worse. I spent 10 years in the court system fighting for custody of my child and won. I met Alexis Moore, who is a dv survivor and president of Survivors In Action, when I started my website, "Women's Legal Resource." I wanted to help women who were going through the same thing I experienced. When I needed help, there were no real resources for women. Sadly, the website is down due to not having the financial resources to maintain the site. Women still reach out through Facebook and I help when I can. I will never turn someone away, they will always have someone to get help from. Alexis and I revamped SIA (Survivors in Action) and joined forces to take on the VAWA. I started the Domestic violence reform page on Facebook. I wrote a grant to the Department of Justice for the Hope grant which awarded 10k for new dv organizations. We were denied. I called the White House directly and spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder at great lengths and we got the grant. It was not easy to say the least. I lost everything I had. I was set to appear on the Dr. Phil show for deadbeat dads, my ex owes more than 60,000 in child support. I got a check for .49 cents literally.
 
My ex heard about it and threatened to kill my entire family. (he was arrested for murder in 2006 for killing a drug dealer.) he was convicted by LA county and the state moved me and my daughter to Arizona. We have been here for 4 years. I helped many women and Alexis and I were a great team. It became too much for me. My health is declining, I am on Social Security and I have no car and it's very hard for me to get around. I am trying to go back to school and finish my paralegal degree.I want to give my kid a better life. She deserves much more than I can give her and it kills me. When I can I help women who are in need here. Laws here in AZ are very different. It's the wild west here. I want to get my degree to help those who have helped me here. I want to give back. St. Vincent de Paul the church here have taken my daughter and I under their wing to support us. I need to give back and help them too.
 
My goal is to finish my paralegal degree so that I can provide a better lifestyle for my daughter and to provide assistance to the homeless regarding tenant/landlord issues and to work with domestic violence victims with preparing restraining orders and to be an advocate in court. I plan on volunteering my services to the St. Vincent de Paul church as a way of giving back for the help they have given me since I arrived on Arizona. I also want to get involved in lobbying to change the way domestic violence victims are treated and handled during a crisis in Arizona. I want to make a difference in someone's life in any I can. I also want to advocate against bullying and child abuse and with my degree I will be able to do that. There are many different sectors I will be able to work in. This is not a job for me, it's my passion and my purpose in life. Needing a car is important and very much needed. I have been turned down by all loan companies, etc.
 
Thank you, Randi Rosen
