Recently, there was a triple domestic violence homicide in Palm Beach County that left me horrified, saddened and angry. The young woman had done everything our legal system allows to protect herself and her family from her abuser but it did not save her or her two brothers.
Our laws are not strong enough and our community response to domestic violence is not loud enough. We must let our local, state and federal leaders know that our current laws are too weak and that guns in the hands of abusers leads to the death and destruction of our neighbors, friends, family members and co-workers. We must stand up together and demand stronger protection and laws for victims of abuse.
Contact your Mayor, County Commissioner, Governor Ron DeSantis, your state Representatives and Senators from your district, Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Rick Scott and demand they stand with victims of domestic violence NOW.
