LGBTQ members fall victim to domestic violence at equal or even higher rates compared to their heterosexual counterparts.ā€– NCADV


I Remember NicoleĀ is a metaphor for the highly publicizedĀ domestic violence story of Nicole Brown Simpson.

In 1995, OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder charges for the deaths, of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman.

Working as a video-journalist, Renee covered the “Trial of the Century” and never forgot the impact Nicole Brown Simpson’s death made on her. Imprinted in her mind are the shocked and heartbreaking expressions on the faces of Nicole’s family. She and Mj want the world to remember Nicole and all women who suffered and continue to suffer from abuse.Ā
