Choose Respect

parnell collage

Many thanks to Governor Parnell for joining us for breakfast this morning and sharing his vision on the administration's "Choose Respect" initiative.

Speaking to a full house this morning the governor challenged groups like ours to continue our efforts to keep the conversation about domestic violence going.  Remember, sometimes a victim only needs someone they can trust to take a step towards getting help.  Our children need to hear that abusing someone else is never acceptable.
