domestic violence

DD Valkyrie is a creator and founder of Alaska Geeky Mamas, a Facebook community that provides outreach and support to Alaskan women in crisis.

"We now have women in the group from all over. We support women through abusive relationships, divorce, grief and loss, all stages of life, whether they're mothers or not mothers. We're trans-inclusive, we're extremely diverse."

The group refers to itself as the #squidsquad.

 

As KNBA puts away it's phone bank and continues fundraising online, we'd like to thank the phone bank volunteers who put in so many hours for a cause they believe in. 

Thank You! 

And listeners who want to become donors, we are returning to morning guests chatting about what is happening in Our Community, but that doesn't mean you can't donate online if you want to, look for the orange "Donate Now" button above.  

KNBA's Morning Line guest today for Our Community - Robert Heffle, is the Manager of Learning and Development at Southcentral Foundation.
