Statement from Mayor Walsh on Domestic Violence Legislation
April 9, 2014
It is clear that as a society, we need to do more to ensure that every home is safe. We need to make sure every victim of domestic violence has protection and support as they try to leave potentially harmful environments. This legislation takes an important step in the right direction, and I look forward to working with the Legislature to ensure that the Commonwealth takes a strong stance against perpetrators while supporting victims as they bravely work to break the cycle of domestic violence."
