On October 22, 2008 Brenda Clubine was released from prison after serving 26 years for defending herself against her abusive husband.


She now continues with her advocacy by speaking out about the dangers of abusive relationships in hopes that people will continue to make a difference in the struggle against domestic violence.


"I waited and dreamed for 26 years to once again be able to feel the water on my toes at the beach.


I realize for some that isn't a big deal. But, for the morning after my release it was the most amazing moment I could have had!"

Touchdown in Arizona

We arrived in Arizona on Sunday evening and got settled in to where we are staying. On Monday we first went to ASU where I spoke to a class of students.

While speaking to the class I had the opportunity afterward to meet a young lady that spoke up about living in an abusive home and how that has taken a toll with her siblings. Her mother is now in a positive relationship and yet, her siblings are struggling with the anger a childhood of abuse left them with.

This young lady was not sure that she would be able to attend our screening that night at the school. She came to the screening that night and was touched in an amazing way. She was able to understand how her family members could struggle with their anger and not be able to realize that the cycle can be broken by themselves.

Not only was this young lady in attendance for the screening but many other that were searching for answers to either their own abuse or the abuse a family member of friend had or has been suffering.

Later that same evening the young woman who had shared with me, her mother emailed me and told me her daughter was touched and she called me as well. She let me know that this made a difference for their family and said thank you.

It is such a feeling of accomplishment to see the transformation happen once these people have seen SIN BY SILENCE. It opens doors not only for dialog to happen, but for change to be possible when you are feeling there is nothing you can do or no way out. It means just as much to see these people be able to say that this film and listening to me share my personal story has given them the strength to follow through with others in their lives they are concerned about, so that ultimately my nightmare does not become their reality.
