Through recording her 2nd CD titled Empowerment, dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence, she blew up on myspace.com and her followers started launching satellite web sites and pages to compliment and support other aspects of the cause to fight all forms of domestic abuse and animal abuse.
This network came to be called the, “War On Abuse Movement,” and through a petition Petra was elected the leader of this grass roots effort. From 2006 to the present, this internet, advocate network of over 100 web sites, web pages, videos and blogs has received over 2.5 million hits.
