Victims of intimate partner violence benefit from Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (EAA)
Norma Peterson, sister-in-law of missing Bolingbrook mother, Stacy Peterson, has been named Executive Director of Document the Abuse which houses the work of the late domestic violence advocate Susan Murphy Milano, specifically, the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (EAA).
Peterson worked directly with Chicago native Murphy Milano behind the scenes during her family’s high profile case and since its conclusion is able to become a public spokesperson for the safety of abuse victims.
As Executive Director, Peterson will be working with other experts to train and certify providers to catapult the EAA into a network of assistance for victims of abuse. These experts, including Peterson, are available for speaking engagements and/or training:
- Sandra L. Brown, The Institute for Relational Harm Reduction
- Neil Schori, faith based community
- Michelle Harkey, victim service providers
- Michelle Cruz, attorney and former CT State Victim Advocate
- Monica Caison, Founder of CUE Center for Missing Persons.
As an Illinois State Outreach Coordinator for CUE Center for Missing Persons, Norma Peterson heads a team of volunteers within the organization who assist with implementing all aspects of Document the Abuse and the EAA.
About Document the Abuse and the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit: …“the EAA helps victims of abuse, stalking, or harassment. It can be used for anyone in a situation which has the potential for harm to an individual be it physical, sexual, psychological or financial.” The EAA relates the victim’s story, history, and experiences if anything should happen that they are unable to speak for themselves.
