WHERE: This press conference will be held virtually on Zoom. Those interested in attending must send an email to receive an invitation to the event.

NOTE: The prepared comments will be fairly short – no more than 15 minutes. We have found that Zoom conferences work best on a computer, as opposed to mobile devices. Members of the media will have the ability to ask questions using the Chat feature in Zoom. All questions must pertain to the topic of domestic violence. Media attendees may record the press conference in Zoom.
