The national release of a video about Jana Mackey, a Lawrence woman who was killed by her former boyfriend, will be Tuesday.
“This powerful video brings to light the dramatic impact of domestic violence,” a news release from Jana’s Campaign said. “The story of Jana’s life and death are illustrated in the hopes of encouraging others to take action.”
Jana’s Campaign was formed to raise awareness about domestic violence and form strategies to reduce it.
The video will be available at http://JanasStory.org.
Mackey, a former Kansas University law student, served as an advocate to help victims of sexual and domestic violence and was a lobbyist for the National Organization for Women.
She was murdered in 2008 by Adolfo Garcia-Nunez, who was arrested in New Jersey and then committed suicide in a holding cell.
