Attorney General Loretta Lynch ignores male victims of domestic violence

From SAVE Services:

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch delivered remarks about domestic violence at a Justice Department event.

As one can see from the transcript, here. AG Lynch repeatedly refers to female victims, but doesn't mention male victims once.

We at SAVE know that male domestic violence victims do exist, and it's important that our national leaders take time to acknowledge them so that they receive critical resources and attention.

Please contact the Department of Justice and share your concerns: (202) 353-1555 or Contact us

We also invite you to review the new VAWA provisions, referenced by AG Lynch, to make them inclusive of all victims:click here

All the best,
