Verizon Sponsors Conference Geared Toward Ending Domestic Violence

Verizon has partnered with the African American Men of Westchester and will sponsor the upcoming “Men Speaking to Men to Stop Violence Against Women” conference. Members of church and youth organizations are coming together to discuss a long term plan for solutions to the issue of domestic violence. Verizon’s support for the African American Men of Westchester is another initiative in their efforts towards prevention and awareness of domestic violence. “The consequences of domestic violence can devastate a family,” said Catherine Gasteyer, of Verizon’s government and external affairs team. “This unique conference hosted by the African American Men of Westchester will educate, raise awareness, and empower young men in our community to end the cycle of violence.”
