SOCIAL MEDIA ON DAY OF ACTION 2019

For three years in a row, New York State has had the highest demand for domestic violence services in the country. Funding for domestic violence programs and services have been flat for years and our 30-year-old service delivery system needs critical reforms to ensure services are provided in a survivor-centered manner.

Help NYSCADV spread the word that we cannot wait any longer. We must allocate significant state-originating dollars to ensure victims receive the assistance they need to stay safe and protect their families, and funding is needed to address the root causes and conditions that make domestic violence possible.
