On Friday May 1st, the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence is pleased to bring national experts Gael Strack, JD and Ralph Riviello, MD, to Maine for a day-long training called Addressing Strangulation: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach.
We have to stop this violence. We have to make the political nature of the violence clear, that the violence we experience in our own homes is not a personal family matter, it's a public and political problem.
As part of a coordinated response to domestic violence, we provide information and consultation to inform statewide policy development around issues relevant to people impacted by domestic abuse. We work to ensure that the voices of people who have experienced abuse are represented in the policy-making process.
