Protect D.C.'s Domestic Violence Services!

In the District of Columbia, a domestic violence emergency call reaches the Metropolitan Police Department every 17 minutes.  Yet D.C. remains one of the only jurisdictions in the country without dedicated local funding to support services for victims of domestic violence and their children.

Local funding has sustained significant cuts in recent years, forcing programs to drastically reduce - and potentially completely eliminate - life saving services.  The domestic violence community cannot sustain services that save constituents' lives if the District continues to cut funding for core, non-residential anti-domestic violence programs and services.

Please sign this petition and tell D.C. policy makers that they must prioritize funding for core, non-residential programs and services for victims of domestic violence and their children in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget.
