Marshall hopes that Alabamians will recognize those lives who were lost and damaged by domestic violence, celebrate and honor those who have survived, and show support for those who advocate for victims of such a disgusting crime.
Four Broome County organizations that provide domestic violence services received grants from New York State on Thursday morning.

As leaders in our homes, communities and careers, it is important that we understand the lasting and long term impact that domestic violence, abuse and neglect has on those who have experienced it or are now experiencing it. "At that point we will have a candle lighting vigil for victims of domestic violence, so that's what 'lights up the night'".
The event aims to raise awareness about domestic violence and educate men and boys about preventing sexual assault and violence against women.
"Our advocates will be providing education and information to help our communities overcome the epidemic of domestic violence and become safer for everyone", the release states.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women have been the victims of some form of physical violence by a partner within their lifetime. "Friends and families, local community members, victims' advocates, law enforcement and prosecutors, we all stand with those who need our help to survive and overcome, to see that offenders are stopped and punished, and to remember and honor those who were lost", said Attorney General Marshall. "It impacts how people are able to come to work, how students are able to function at school".
In a 24-hour survey, NNEDV found that US domestic violence programs served almost 65,321 victims and answered more than 23,045 crisis hotline calls in one day alone. Both services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
