Moving one step closer to the DVSJA

Print Friendly

On Monday, April 22nd, the NYS Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) held their annual Lobby Day in Albany, NY.

NYSCADV is a long-time ally in our efforts to bring justice to domestic violence survivors who get caught up in the criminal justice system. For a third year in a row, NYSCADV has advocated for the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act (DVSJA) as part of its legislative platform.

As a result of Monday’s lobby day, we received co-sponsorship commitments from 5 additional legislators! We are now up to 33 co-sponsors in the Assembly and 23 co-sponsors in the Senate.

We are pleased to also be partnering with two additional coalitions that have chosen to advocate for the DVSJA again this year: the Milk Not Jails Coalition and the NY Reentry Roundtable.

MILK NOT JAILS – an introduction video from our DVSJA advocacy partner MILK NOT JAILS.
