MCEDV was pleased to welcome Columba Bush on her July 9th visit to Maine. Mrs. Bush, a longtime supporter of domestic violence services, toured Family Crisis Services in Portland and discussed the statewide response to abuse in Maine.
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.
MCEDV is committed to seeking political solutions to address the issue of abuse in our state and our nation.
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.
