<p>The homicides, exploitation of our children, and domestic violence in our community continues and this violence must be combated tooth and nail. Last year, thanks to your ardent support and bravery in sharing your experiences, we were able to create the Department of Violence Prevention. This year, we press on to hold the administration accountable to the department's legislative intent so we may preserve the integrity of the department and maintain the respect of those who fought so hard to advocate for it.</p>
