Monday, February 13th we are hosting a virtual Statewide Budget Advocacy Day. This is an opportunity for all of you to call, fax, and email your legislators and Governor Cuomo to let them know about the specific needs of domestic violence organizations and the survivors they serve around the state (see below for budget priorities). We will also be using social media to spread the message, and ask programs and allies to join us in this effort. We encourage survivors to contact their elected officials to let them know how important these issues are.
We will be posting more detailed information about the campaign in the days to come. This will include sample call dialogues, emails, letters and social media posts. NYSCADV will be scheduling in person meetings with key legislators and officials within the Executive Chamber that same day.
Let's send the Legislature and Governor's office a resounding message from every domestic violence program in New York State - that they must make the budget count for survivors of domestic violence!
