New York State still has the highest demand for domestic violence services in the country. We cannot wait any longer – now is the time for lawmakers to invest in life saving services. On Monday, February 13, 2017 domestic violence victim advocates, survivors and allies from across the state will call on New York State lawmakers to prioritize domestic violence funding in the New York State budget.

For years we have seen long standing gaps in funding for domestic violence programs across the state as a result of flat or reduced investments.  New York State, once again, is Number 1 in demand for domestic violence services in the country.  The 2016 census conducted by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) additionally shows that unmet requests for help have gone up by 45% in the past year because of critical funding and staff shortages.

We want our legislators to know how important the work of domestic violence advocates is. They need to hear a resounding message that the NYS Legislature must support additional services, stem the tide of domestic violence, invest in primary prevention, and pass legislation that increases access to safety, freedom, and justice.

We are calling on programs, survivors and allies to spread the message over social media, asking lawmakers to pass legislation that will protect survivors of domestic violence in New York and to invest in primary prevention today!
