NORTH BROOKLYN COALITION AGAINST FAMILY VIOLENCE
Where your money is going and their mission:
http://www.northbrooklyncoalition.org/

The goal of the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence program is to decrease the incidence of domestic violence in the community and mitigate its effects on victims and their families. By providing community based services and creating a locally based support network, the Coalition seeks to reduce the practical and cultural barriers which often prevent victims from seeking or receiving assistance from the criminal justice system. Our ultimate goal is to enable survivors of domestic violence to negotiate the criminal justice system, break the cycle of violence, and increase their capacity to take back power and control of their own lives so that they may safely remain in the community, if they wish, or begin new lives elsewhere.

February 16, 7pm, Bar Matchless, Brooklyn, $10
