other populations that may be underserved in your community, but this committee is
currently limited to addressing only the three populations mentioned above.)

consider sending your written statement to be read to the subcommittee in your
absence. If you do this, please include your name and contact information (if it is
safe to contact you), the name of the domestic violence program in your community,
whether of not you used their services, and your recommendations to enhance the
services to these populations.

Written comments may be emailed to: or faxed to

required, but this will help with planning the meeting).

Your voice is important and your perspective is valued.

Thank you for participating in this process!
