Janine Latus, New York Times best-selling author of “If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister’s Story of Love, Murder and Liberation” will speak on Zoom for the Rachel Coalition. The talk, set for Tuesday, October 26, at 10 a.m., is part of the coalition’s Women to Women program. Ms. Latus’s memoir explores issues that many women face in our society, particularly physical or emotional abuse. Her story illustrates the wide spectrum of abusive behavior and shows the cycle of self-doubt that can lead smart, attractive women to remain in abusive relationships.
Proceeds from the luncheon support the Rachel Coalition, the domestic violence prevention division of Jewish Family Service of MetroWest New Jersey. The coalition’s mission is to improve the lives of people affected by domestic violence by providing a comprehensive and coordinated response to domestic violence in the MetroWest community and the community at large.
