SAN DIEGO (CBS8) - Tanya Brown, the sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, spoke at a domestic violence awareness forum in North County on Thursday.
The forum and resource fair was held at the North Inland Live Well Center in Escondido. The event focuses on how to recognize the signs of domestic violence and the resources available to victims.
Tanya Brown said her sister's death prompted her to speak to groups like this in the hopes of helping women who find themselves in the same situation.
County officials say Escondido police received more than 1,000 domestic violence calls in 2014.
