"A Truth in Silence" is based on a little known true story of one weekend in the life of my mother in 1976. At that time, she was only 16 years old with one child already and 8 months pregnant with my middle brother on the way. 

With your help I hope to bring awareness and hope to a subject that is ignored until it is too late. With a goal budget of $20,000 we will be able to cover production and post production as well as any cost associated with helping bring awareness and assistance to the current  two non-profit crisis centers I am collaborating with.

- Violence Intervention Program (Los Angeles, CA)

- The Family Tree (Denver, CO)

Victims of domestic violence often times will not tell you about their past and they will continue for years to silently suffer.  They will continue to hold fear or anxiety from things that happened so long ago. These issues have the capability of holding a person hostage, hindering their potential in life. For me personally, I still struggle with the vivid memories. But for the most part, I have been able to help myself heal. However for me, it means nothing if I can’t help another victim/survivor do the same.

Should you have questions or concernes please feel free to contact me via e-mail Fdpina@yahoo.com, or my producer Lynnette Myers at Directbridge@yahoo.com .

Thank you for your generosity!
