Nicole Beverly

Meet Nicole Beverly.  The Ypsilanti Township woman lives in fear every day that her ex-husband will be released from prison and follow through on his threats to kill her and the two children they share.  In this introductory interview, you'll hear of her ongoing story.  In the future, Ms. Beverly will update the WEMU audience on the court cases underway right now that seek to keep her ex behind bars.  You'll be told of her advocacy efforts to win better protections for women in dangerous situations, in the moment and through the legal process.
