LaTasha Jackson-McDougle- Says “NO” to Bullying!

LaTasha Jackson-McDougle is the founder of Cheryl’s Voice which is an organization she started Cheryl’s Voice to be a voice for children who have suffered the loss of their parent(s) due to domestic homicide/suicide. She is highly motivated to encourage children who survived and witnessed domestic violence in their homes. She actively promotes Domestic Violence Awareness in the communities letting Cheryl’s Voice be heard. LaTasha has educationally committed her life to strategically positioning herself to serve others earning a bachelor’s degree in Social Work, a Master’s in Criminology & Criminal Justice, and Honor’s Masters in Social Work; all at the University of Arlington. While working on both of her master degrees, LaTasha decided to write a thesis that involved research surrounding the domestic violence case that claimed both of her parent’s lives and left her and her brother devastated.

Says "NO" to Bullying!

During the course of her research she discovered critical information that the prosecutors and police department could have possibly utilized to intervene sooner and save her mother’s life. LaTasha’s Thesis has been published and is titled “The Prosecutor’s Role in helping Domestic Violence Victims”. Through the research LaTasha also discovered her mother utilized resources of Women’s Haven (now safe haven) along with the women’s center. LaTasha actively volunteers and participates in events for both agencies; LaTasha realizes that not everyone is blessed with immediate or extended family that has the ability to step in and care for the children who are left behind; therefore Cheryl’s Voice was created to assist in meeting their needs.

LaTasha says,” I truly believe that if we involve youth. Teens can take leadership roles in bullying prevention among younger kids. Also we can identify partners such as mental health specialists, law enforcement officers, neighborhood associations, service groups, faith-based organizations, and businesses that are willing to help in the efforts.”
