Chantal Barlow

Chantel Barlow knew her grandfather as a loving, religious, and sober man.

At the age of 16, she learned that her grandmother, Maybleine Nelson Barlow, was shot to death by her grandfather in 1975 in Compton, California in front of her father.  Maybleine died at age 36, leaving seven children motherless.  Her grandfather never served time for this crime.

Chantal began her Unconventional Apology Project for women of domestic violence  to allow these survivors freedom from their past violations by sharing their experiences and emotions so that they can live healthier lives.

Chantal’s unique approach has been recognized by USC, UCLA, the City of Los Angeles, and various magazines.
