Why this petition matters

Started by Katie Wilson

Hi, 

I’m Katie Wilson. I’m a 24 year old bubbly young women who had her life stolen due to years of domestic violence where I’d be burnt and strangled to endangerment of my life. My abuse started in 2016 and didn’t end until 2020. The police then didn’t open a case until January 2021. My abuser was aloud to get away with a campaign of violent brutal domestic abuse for NINE YEARS. 
Claire’s law isn’t made easy to access, I’d like to see stronger sentences and for Parliament to discuss why petty crime gets longer than a monster who has stolen someone’s life from them by making them suffer long term mental health issues and also PTSD. 
Every Year Jess Phillips silences the commons to read out the names of the women who have been brutally murdered by domestic violence. 

there is always discussion on tighter rules and still nothing is done.
