City Council Honors Ten Domestic Violence Organizations

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the City Council honored 10 DV organizations during the ceremonials prior to last week’s stated meeting. Melissa presented a proclamation to New York Latinas Against Domestic Violence for the 10th anniversary of the Brides’ March and the Women’s Caucus honored nine service providers, including El Barrio/East Harlem-based Violence Intervention Program (VIP).
