Activist Citizens: Renee Sotile & Mj Godges 📣 Raising Awareness while Raising the Roof!
I Will Free myself, Believe in Myself / I Will Keep Myself Safe and Whole
I Will Love myself, Reach Out for Help / This is What I Know, I Remember Nicole
American Idol singer Hollie Cavanagh & Melodye Perry (daughter of music legend Edna Wright and niece of Darlene Love, for music aficionados) bring a resonating voice to the voiceless.
“Nicole” is a metaphor for the highly publicized domestic violence story of Nicole Brown Simpson.
Working as a video-journalist, Renee Sotile covered the “Trial of the Century” and never forgot the impact Nicole’s death made on her. Imprinted in her mind are the shocked and heartbreaking expressions on the faces of Nicole’s family when on October 3, 1995, O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges for the deaths, of his ex-wife Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman.
Filmmakers 🎬Two-Time Emmy Winner Renee Sotile & Mary jo Godges say their goal behind “I Remember Nicole” is to empower victims and survivors and start conversations, and for the world to remember Nicole and all those who suffered and continue to suffer from abuse.
TANYA BROWN — “I Remember Nicole is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking! It brought tears to my eyes, my sister Denise, our Mother, and I know to Nicole in Heaven.”
FACT: LGBTQ fall victim to domestic and intimate partner violence at equal or even higher rates compared to male/female relationships.
