WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A news reporter for TV FOX 4 in Kansas City
will present the Pace University Battered Women’s Justice Center
with a $10,000 donation at a ceremony on Friday, September 18 at
4 p.m. in the Tudor Room of the Pace University School of Law Campus,
78 North Broadway in White Plains. Harris Faulkner selected the
Center because of its work in providing legal representation to
indigent battered women.

The Center will use the funds to help more indigent women obtain
orders of protection, better custody determinations, and legal counsel
when they have fought back against their abusers.

Faulkner’s $10,000 donation to the Center represents the sum of a 1998
scholarship she was awarded by the Atchinson Chamber of Commerce. She
has chosen to donate these funds to the Pace Center out of a personal
commitment to assist victims of stalkers and women who fall victim to
domestic violence. In July 1998, Faulkner won the Amelia Earhart Pioneering
Achievement Award for her courageous and aggressive reporting of her own
history as a stalking victim.

Faulkner learned of the Pace Battered Women’s Justice Center after
searching the Internet for information about groups active in gender
violence intervention work. According to Vicki Lutz, the Center’s
director, “Apparently, we were #581 on the list of websites she had
pulled up; she called; I told her about the work of the Center, and
when I told her that we desperately needed more money for legal
representation efforts for battered women, she offered her $10,000
award. I couldn’t believe it! I want to thank Ms. Faulkner for her
great generosity. She is an amazing person and a real leader in the
war against gender violence.”

Faulkner is co-anchor of “FOX 4 NEWS AT SIX” and “FOX 4 NEWS AT TEN”
as well as a correspondent reporting on such stories as the 1995 Oklahoma
City bombing and the 1996 presidential campaign. She is a graduate of the
Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida. She was
recognized as one of Kansas City’s most influential African Americans in
1994 and 1996 and has been named Kansas City’s Best Female Television
Anchor for three consecutive years by Pitchweekly, a local newspaper.

The Pace Battered Women’s Justice Center is the first university-based
center in the United States dedicated to training lawyers to handle battered
women’s cases. A nonprofit organization, the Center provides its training
at no cost to the participants and relies on state and private funding for
its operation.

Founded in 1976, Pace Law School has nearly 5,000 alumni throughout the
country. It offers full- and part-time day and evening programs on its
White Plains, N.Y., campus. The School has one of the nation’s top-rated
environmental law programs, and is part of a comprehensive, independent and
