Victims of Domestic Abuse Looking for Help

In the struggle over scarce dollars in the Oregon Legislature, victims of domestic violence are urging lawmakers not to forget about them. Anastasia Papadapolous says she endured years of abuse. For example, her husband would lock her in a room, where no one could hear her, and beat her with a board having nails in it. She says her abuser was jailed, and her life was saved by Oregon’s system of victim advocates. She’s lobbying lawmakers to preserve the funding for shelters and other services.
