On July 22, MCEDV staff member Margo Batsie, along with Sharon Lewis from Safe Voices and Hannah Ives from New Hope for Women, traveled to Washington, D.C. to attend the 2014 Financial Empowerment Symposium. In its 10th year, the Symposium is a joint effort hosted by the National Network to End Domestic Violence and the Allstate Foundation.
Nearly 70 people turned out on July 21 in Orono for MCEDV’s training, Responding to High Risk Domestic Violence Cases: Focus on Strangulation. Attendees came from many different fields--including law enforcement, prosecution, advocacy and the military--and represented much of the northern, central and eastern parts of the state.
