New York State continuously has the highest demand for domestic violence services in the country. Survivors and DV agencies have sounded the alarm for years, but New York State has failed to respond. As a result, DV services across the state are at a tipping point. Funding cuts, a complex funding system, hundreds of agency vacancies, and static wages are significantly impacting the state’s domestic violence service providers safety net, directly impacting survivors’ ability to access services. Domestic violence services across the state are in crisis. New York’s survivors deserve more.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 2nd and join the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) in Albany for our 2023 Day of Action. We’re counting on YOU – survivors, advocates, coalition and community partners, legislators, and community members – to raise your voices. Let the State know that it must invest in DV services.
Now is the time to reimagine New York’s domestic violence services safety net. This year’s event features a purple-themed rally, a march through the Capitol, and a press conference on the Million Dollar Staircase.
Who Should Attend: Everyone is welcome to attend. We highly encourage survivors, domestic violence program staff, sexual assault program staff, crime victim program staff, legal services staff, coalition and community partners, and community members to attend.
