NYSCADV VLDA Morning Program with Legislative Leaders
New York State’s system of funding and oversight of domestic violence programs is antiquated, having not been updated since it was established more than 30 years ago. The Governor and Legislature need to understand that these outdated policies must be abolished to ensure that victims in need of shelter and other services are able to obtain the support they need immediately and without conditions.
The remainder of the 2021 Legislative Session also presents an opportunity to get meaningful legislation approved that protects survivors of domestic violence in New York State.
On May 11th, we encourage you to join NYSCADV and a dynamic and engaged group of providers, survivors and allies from across New York State in raising our voices and relaying a unified message to the Legislature and Governor: We need to pass meaningful legislation to ensure survivors of domestic violence receive the support they need, and we must re-envision domestic violence funding so no one who is asking for shelter or other services is ever turned away.
