Why we march.

Together we are making a difference!anh and emily

In 2008, Berkshire County’s rate of restraining orders was 40% higher than the state average. In 2010, it was 37% higher than the state average. In 2012, it was 28%. We are heading in the right direction…

But we still have much work to do.  In 2013, Elizabeth Freeman Center served 4,722 adults and children.  And the resources to continue this work are at risk.  This year, Elizabeth Freeman Center’s government funding is still over $25,000 less than it was in 2009.

Violence affects our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, our health system, our businesses, our children, our future.  Come add your voice (and your feet) to those calling for change.
