PHX 11, the city’s information station, is focusing on teen-dating violence in a special edition of “DiverseCity” that premiered this month during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Guests include Phoenix police Cmdr. Kim Humphrey, a nationally recognized law-enforcement expert on domestic violence; Bobbi Sudberry whose teen-aged daughter, Kaity, was shot and killed by an ex-boyfriend who later committed suicide; Jennifer Rauhause, executive director of Peer Solutions, a nonprofit organization that fosters healthy communities; and Gabriella Caezalier, a Tempe High School student who is a community activist.
Each guest has a compelling story to share, in particular Sudberry.
She was instrumental in the passage of Arizona’s “Kaity’s Law” and advocates for legislation to prevent teen-dating violence.
PHX 11 is broadcast on Cox Cable Channel 11 and accessible on phoenix.gov. For replay times and more information, visit phoenix.gov/11. Residents also may follow PHX 11 at twitter.com/watchphx11 or become a fan on Facebook.
