Adelita M. Medina, Executive Director of Alianza, told the audience that “we want men to know that DV is not just a woman’s issue; they too can and should play a role as advocates and role models… every one in the community needs to get involved.”

NYS Assemblyman Adriano Espaillat said he has introduced several pieces of legislation to help victims of domestic violence

Commissioner Yolanda Jimenez from the NYC Mayor’s Office to Combat DV helped organize the event. She and Victor Rivers are featured in PSAs produced and aired by Univision in the weeks following the event.

Mario Bosquez, CBS News 2 anchor and reporter, whose mother was a victim of domestic violence, told the audience: “I am not a survivor of domestic abuse. I live it everyday in my head; it’s not over."

Victor Rivers read a moving passage from his book,
A Private Family Matter.

Rossana Rosado, Publisher and CEO of El Diario/La Prensa and Antonio Martínez, Univisión 41, anchor and reporter, were the MCs.
