Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) participated in New Jersey Domestic Violence Awareness Advocacy Day, sponsored by the NJ State Junior League.

Sen. Jennifer Beck has long worked to raise awareness of domestic violence. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

“I’m proud to make sure that domestic violence remains a priority for legislators in Trenton. I remain dedicated to ensuring that victims of domestic violence are protected in our State, which is just one reason that I am proud to sponsor legislation crafted with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ input to restrict access to firearms by persons subject to restraining orders or convicted of domestic violence offenses. There is more work to be done, however, to rid our society of domestic violence. I urge anyone in need to call the National Domestic Violence help-line, 24 hours a day, at 1-800-799-SAFE, or visiting www.TheHotline.org.”

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Senator Beck and her colleagues wore purple to raise awareness for the victims of domestic violence.

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.

Domestic violence affects both women and men in our state since 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.
