Why are you excited to work with DOVE?

Violence against women remains a critical issue globally, and is a barrier to reaching equality. In the spirit of thinking globally and acting locally, I am eager to support DOVE’s outstanding work on the South Shore and to increase awareness of the issue of domestic violence in our communities. I fully support DOVE’s tag line – Every home should be a safe home.
