There is a growing epidemic that is spreading at unexpected speeds......Domestic Violence! The people who are most affected by this are women and children.
I myself for one happen to be a woman and I happen to also be a victim of domestic violence which is why I started this petition.
Whether or not you have ever been involved in domestic violence, I am asking for your help in calling public attention to the needs of women, children and families that have been hurt by this heinous act that all too many times gets ignored once they enter the court system.
Please sign this petition today.
I am calling on individuals who oppose this heinous act to please sign the petition which is calling for New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg to hold the Judges, Law Guardians and abusers accountable for their actions. Yes domestic violence is a big issue, but if we are steadfast in making our complaints known and voices heard then they cannot continue to ignore us. I am appealing to women and yes the honorable men who absolutely oppose violent acts committed against women and children to please sign the petition. Men you have mothers, daughter's, sisters and nieces. You would not condone this sort of behavior against the female members of your family so please help us to speak out against this and sign the petition.
All too many times Domestic Violence cost's mother's their children and their happiness and in extreme cases their lives.
* 1 in 4 women are victims of domestic violence
* Bureau of Justice Statistics (Intimate Partner Violence) states that more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends every day.
Most people believe that if its not in their household that domestic violence does not affect them but this is untrue.
HELP BREAK THE SILENCE!
Please, please sign the attached petition.
Your support is needed whether or not you have been a victim of domestic violence. Your signature is simply a sign that you care.
