The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence is pleased to announce that we are working with Glenn Beck, the nationally syndicated radio host, host of and #1 New York Times Bestselling author. Beck has written The Snow Angel, a poignant tale about family, forgiveness and the freedom to live a future free of the past. It is a story about domestic violence as well. The book recounts the story of Rachel, and how her experiences as a child lead her to repeating destructive patterns. It also highlights what can happen when friends and family provide the support necessary to leave an abuser and reclaim the hopes and dreams that were crushed by the violence and abuse.

 While many victims of domestic violence don’t experience this kind of support and have to face the challenges of leaving the violence behind alone, this is how we want a community to respond to families in danger. The Snow Angel is a story of hope and a future vision of health and happiness.

 The book will be the focus of his live show on December 14th at 5:00 PM EST. Our national spokesperson, actress April Hernandez, a former victim herself, and I are scheduled to participate in the show. You may log in to access the show, and it will be available for re-air, for free, on. December 15th.

 “NCADV is thrilled to have Glenn Beck join us in our commitment to end violence in our communities,” says Rita Smith, Executive Director of the Coalition. “Through relationships like this, we are part of the national movement to encourage efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to domestic violence. Beck’s ability to inspire others and personal tale of triumph over adversity directly affects our work by providing us with the means to educate the public about the dynamics of the issue, and empower survivors of abuse.”

 NCADV’s mission is to organize for collective power by advancing transformative work, thinking and leadership of communities and individuals working to end the violence in our lives. We provide a network that promotes and unifies direct services for victims; we advocate for policy development and innovative legislation; and we strive to represent the concerns of traditionally marginalized groups.

 We deeply appreciate Beck’s support as we work to make “Every Home A Safe Home”.
