Casa Myrna marked Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a number of activities. We launched our eleventh statewide public awareness transit ad campaign to spotlight the SafeLink domestic violence hotline. Governor Patrick hosted a successful campaign kickoff press event at the statehouse. Click to view coverage of this event by the Mass Non-Profit News, BDCwire, WWLP-22 News, and Boston News Group. We also held our first annual Policy Maker Breakfast at the Algonquin Club on October 16, 2014 for elected officials and the statewide candidates. We are grateful to Speaker Robert DeLeo (pictured left), our survivor speakers and all guests for joining us at this important event.
