Violence

What can I do on superbowl Sunday to counteract the increased violence against women on that day? Are there activities scheduled for Sunday?

I was out of town sans e-mail, so I apologize for not getting back to you before the SuperBowl. I know my note comes too late for the Superbowl, but maybe for future ones, I would suggest contacting a domestic violence shelter in your area. I'm sure they always need more volunteers. If you need help locating one in your area, let me know and I'm sure I can track one down (you might try our searchable Database of Women's Services under "Shelters for Battered Women". You can also contact the Family Violence Prevention Fund. They have a national network of "shelters" and other organizations that work within the area of domestic violence.

Thanks -- especially on behalf of those who are so unjustly subjected to domestic violence.
