Spokane business leaders are making a last minute push to convince voters to cast ballots for school levies on the February 9 ballot.

Thirteen Spokane County school districts have submitted measures for maintenance and operations levies. Four also have levies that would pay for capital projects.

Today on the Inland Journal podcast, we’ll hear more about an aggressive new campaign to stop all types of intimate partner and family abuse and violence in Spokane. The city has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in Washington. Community leaders decided that it’s a serious enough problem that it requires a much more vocal and unified campaign.

They created a new documentary that features one survivor of domestic violence who agreed to tell her story. Tonight, that half-hour film will be shown at 7 on all but one of the local television stations.
