FINDING JENN'S VOICE is an award-winning film that tells the story of a woman silenced. Jennifer Snyder was murdered in 2011 by her married boyfriend after he learned that she was pregnant. Like many women who are in unhealthy, controlling relationships, her killer had never so much as hit her before the day he shot her. FINDING JENN'S VOICE lifts the story of Jennifer's death out of the tabloid narrative that blames victims and instead helps viewers understand the complexities of controlling relationships. The film dispels the myths of domestic violence through conversations with survivors of homicide attempts by their husbands or boyfriends. Their insights help us to find Jenn's voice and leave us with a message that is hard to forget.
Lovern, who is a survivor herself, transformed her trauma into strength when she started the Love Life Now Foundation on Instagram as a way to connect and help other survivors. "Having women around me that support me - that in and of itself is a huge deal."
Voices4Change envisions a world where intimate partner abuse is not tolerated by any community, where systemic interventions to domestic violence are effective and evidence-based, and where survivor voices lead the change
