TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senators Barbara Buono and Fred H. Madden to establish a State domestic violence public awareness campaign was signed into law today by Governor Richard J. Codey.
“Through education and awareness we can combat the specter of domestic violence in New Jersey and help women reduce its harmful aspect,” said Senator Buono, D-Middlesex. “We will empower women by teaching them the warning signs of being in a violent relationship and how to remove themselves from danger before they become victims of domestic violence. For those who are already victims, we will show them how to seek counseling and find a safe, healthy place to live so that they can begin the healing process.”
