Coalition Against Domestic Violence organizes State House gathering this afternoon

The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence will host a gathering at the State House from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow during which community members can raise their voices in response to the proposed budget cuts in Rhode Island, and stand with the organization and its six member agencies as they demand no more domestic violence.

The RICADV is facing 25 percent budget cuts to vital statewide domestic violence programs and services that save lives and these cuts will hurt everyone because domestic violence is a public health crisis. But, it is preventable when advocates and victims are given the resources to survive. On NO MORE Day, community members will be encouraged to speak to their legislators and public officials before these cuts take place, and tell them NO MORE.

For more information about how to be involved in this critical movement and important day of action, contact Rachel Orsinger (rorsinger@ricadv.org) or Zulma Garcia (zulma@ricadv.org) at 467-9940.

Is this a news story or an editorial? The only thing missing is the use of the requisite "crisis". Oh, sorry, there it is.
