Queen Pen Appeals For Tougher Domestic Violence Laws
According to All Hip Hop Queen Pen will host a press conference/rally on Friday January 16 to advocate tougher domestic violence legislation in New York. Last year, the state's Criminal Justice division released statistics supporting evidence that 55% of female homicides are due to a domestic issue. Last January Queen Pen was severely beaten and rendered unconscious in a home invasion incident with an ex boyfriend. The brutal beating resulted in the rapper nearly being killed and required reconstructive surgery. The ex-boyfriend and father of two of Queen Pen's children remains at large.....
Big ups to Queen Pen for her efforts. The event takes place January 16 at 4pm at The Denim Lounge which is located on 1223 Bedford Ave. in Brooklyn, NY.
