Linda King is a self proclaimed Southern Girl with a huge heart. She has been blessed with the ability to reach out to others in the areas of grief and domestic violence while serving as a role model within her community. In 1988 Linda King began as a volunteer for The Center Against Family Violence. In September of 2001, Linda’s family experienced a great tragedy in their life when their daughter was murdered. As a result of this tragedy, Linda began working even harder to make her voice heard in the community and to speak out against domestic violence. In 2005 Linda relocated with her family to the Mesa, Arizona area. Her caring, compassion, and involvement in the local community is inspiring. Linda has served on the Board of Directors for MADD, Save the Family Foundation of Arizona, and the Coalition for the Homeless. Linda presently serves as a volunteer for the City of Mesa Neighborhood Outreach Department, Victims Assistance Program for Mesa Police Department, East Valley Domestic Violence Fatality Review Team, Arizona Coalition Against Domestic Violence, East Valley Fresh Start, Domestic Violence Collaborative, SHARE, and Gilbert CAN. She has also spoken to thousands of high school and middle school students about dating/domestic violence. In 2007 Linda formed Fix the Hurt Corp, a not-for-profit, domestic violence awareness and prevention organization. Fix the Hurt has developed numerous programs for presentation to schools, corporations, civic organizations and the prison system. Her latest project is Domestic Violence, The Musical?, a one-hour play which engages the audience in the fight to end domestic violence, holds the abuser accountable, and empowers the victim. Linda has been and continues to be an inspiring leader as she dedicates her time and talents to domestic violence awareness and volunteerism in her community.
