Second Chance Employment Services Thanks Representative Louise Slaughter

September 15, 2009

Second Chance Employment Services, a leading provider of employment training and placement services to victims of domestic violence, thanks and congratulates Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY) for her leadership in passing H.Res.738, commemorating the 15th anniversary of the enactment of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Dr. Ludy Green, President and Founder of Second Chance Employment Services said, "Domestic violence is a plague that affects individuals across America, crossing all boundaries of geography, race, and income. VAWA has provided law enforcement officials and community organizations essential tools to combat these tragic crimes."

Representative Slaughter was joined by 16 co-sponsors in support of the resolution. "Each Member of Congress who supported the original enactment of the VAWA as well as those who supported yesterday's resolution should be proud for standing firmly behind victims of abuse in their states and across America", Green said. Since its inception in 2002, Second Chance has provided training and counseling to more than 1,500 domestic violence victims and placed more than 600 in stable, sustainable jobs, thus enabling them the financial independence that often provides a barrier to escaping abuse.

Dr. Green concluded, "Victims of domestic violence across America depend daily on the tools and programs the Violence Against Women Act provides. Second Chance congratulates Representative Slaughter and all in Congress who continue to support its goals and looks forward to continuing to work with them on to end the tragedy of domestic violence."
