Report urges Mainers to raise their voices against domestic violence

The latest report on domestic violence homicides in Maine urges the public to speak out against family violence.

Titled “Voices Against Violence,” the 75-page report also “celebrates individuals who have used their voices to speak out against domestic violence.”

“Too often we hear a person say that they wished they had called the police or wished they had provided support to a victim or wished they had used their voice for change,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Marchese, who heads the review panel, said in the introduction to the report.

The report was released Tuesday during a media conference at the State House.
