NJDV Movement started this petition to State Senator Nicholas P. Scutari and

This movement is being propelled by Domestic Violence Survivors Aliya, Jannelle, and Danielle Patrice. Although, each of their stories are different they have each been adverse experiences with judiciary, law enforcement, and court officials because of lack of sensitivity towards domestic violence victims.  Aliya, Jannelle, and Danielle Patrice are working towards restructuring how domestic violence is managed by law enforcement and judiciary system.  By supporting these bills, the perception of domestic violence victims will be changed by the judiciary system, court officials, law enforcement, and the NJ culture.

NJ Senate bills 115, 116, 117 mandate court judges, court officials, and law enforcement to take mandatory domestic violence sensitivity training and be educated on the dynamics of domestic violence and the effects it has on the victims and children.

Supporting these bills will prevent the re-victimization of DV victims while in the courtroom or in the police department.

Please support these bills by signing the petition. (You must be a NJ resident with a valid email address) 

You can also call or write Senator Sarlo (NJ budget chair) for Bill 115.  Bill 115 has passed the judiciary committee but now needs to be approved by the budget committee.  Contact Senator Scutari (NJ judiciary chair) for Bills 116 and 117 which needs votes to pass the judiciary committee.   Please sign, call, or write by May 6th 2019 to have the bills on the agenda for the committee’s hearings.
