Madison, Wisconsin — In response to the Governor’s recent letter to the NFL and the NFL Players Association, Executive Director of End Domestic Abuse WI Patti Seger issued the following statement:
“We are deeply grateful for the support the anti-domestic violence movement has received from Governor Walker, the Governor’s Council on Domestic Violence and from the Green Bay Packers. We also maintain that the NFL should both take a stand against domestic violence and that players should continue using their voices and earned platforms to bring attention to the racial inequality that exists in our country. Speaking out against racial injustice doesn’t take away from the effort to end domestic violence; it is part of the solution. Players and other community members who look beyond themselves to support those who are vulnerable to unequal treatment demonstrate the type of attitude we need to end domestic abuse here in Wisconsin and all across the United States.”
End Domestic Abuse WI is the statewide voice for survivors of domestic violence and the membership organization representing local domestic violence victim service providers throughout the state.
