Message from the President of the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, Click Here.   

Domestic violence isn’t just a women’s issue. It impacts everyone – men, children, families and whole communities. In fact, more than seven out of ten Americans know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence, yet it somehow remains a taboo subject.    Albany Law School has joined the national movement (including the Capital District’s “Shine the Light” Campaign) to raise awareness of relationship violence and to offer support for survivors by encouraging everyone – men, women and children – to talk openly about domestic violence. 

Review the flyer above listing many of the programs we will host on our campus, the event on October 18th is open to the public, please join us for a “Remember Me” Candle Light Vigil followed by a reception at 7:15pm in the front of our school.    Additionally, there are many support services in place, click Here to learn more about the many local community partners available to support you during this difficult time.   Monies raised from the sale of purple pins and candles will be donated to The Legal Project.
