Jennifer Clark 
New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence 

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 The Governor and Legislature intend to abolish outdated policies and ensure that victims in need of shelter and other services are able to obtain the support they need immediately and without conditions.

On May 14th, we encourage you to join NYSCADV and a dynamic and engaged group of advocates, 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.


When: Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Where: Legislative Office Building-The Well, Albany, NY 12242

Who Should Attend: Staff and volunteers from organizations that provide services to those affected by intimate partner violence and their families, as well as organizations in New York that are concerned with domestic violence and intimate partner sexual violence. We encourage advocates, survivors, , allies and community members to attend. 

Meet With Your Legislators: Attendees are responsible for scheduling meetings with their assembly members and senators. We encourage you to schedule these appointments after 12:00 PM so that you are able to attend the entire program. If you need guidance in scheduling these visits, please contact our Policy and Community Engagement Coordinator, Jane Ni at 518-482-5465 or policy@nyscadv.org.
