October is Domestic Violence Awareness month.
As a social worker through the Genesee-Orleans-Wyoming Catholic Charities, I sit on the Orleans County Domestic Violence task force. Our task force would like to educate the community about recent changes to the domestic violence law, including expanded options for access to orders of protection.
Our next meeting is October 1st, in Albion and we are looking for a reporter from The Batavian to develop a story about the expanded access laws. If anyone is interested, please contact me to discuss this further. Thank you.
