Domestic violence impacts 1 in 4 women, and is more prevalent for women in the U.S. than diabetes and breast cancer combined.
In Connecticut, nearly 40,000 victims reach out to the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence and its 18 member organizations for help each year.
Tomorrow, Lt. Governor Bysiewicz will be joined by Karen Jarmoc, President and CEO of The Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence; Suzanne Adam, Executive Director of The Domestic Violence Crisis Center; and Karen Foley O'Connor, Executive Director of The Network.
During the discussion, local experts will highlight the services and resources that are available to domestic violence survivors.
