Journey to Healing: A Mother/Daughter Story

June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Join us virtually for an intimate conversation with Patrisha McLean, human rights advocate and her daughter, Jackie McLean. Patrisha McLean was married for 29 years to the singer-songwriter Don (“American Pie”) McLean. From the outside Patrisha’s life seemed like a fairy tale, but she now publicly describes her married life as a nightmare of physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuse. Patrisha’s daughter, Jackie McLean, recently broke her silence about her own experiences with abuse. Jackie and Patrisha will share how their experiences impacted their individual lives as well as their mother/daughter relationship.

Your participation will ensure that hundreds

of domestic violence survivors receive

critical crisis attention, long-term counseling,

legal assistance and financial support.
