According to the Centers for Disease Control, every minute twenty people become victims of violence by their partner. That's a terrible reality. But domestic violence is not an issue without hope. That's why every year,  I partner with many of my city council colleagues across the San Gabriel Valley and sponsor a domestic violence awareness day.

Domestic violence is a complicated issue and needs to be solved with a commitment to bring more resources and implement smarter policy solutions.
