Bayonne Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski is sponsoring a resolution to use federal funds to combat domestic violence through education programs. Ashe-Nadrowski, who is hoping to unseat Mayor Jimmy Davis in the May election, issued this press release:
Bayonne 一 In honor of Women’s History month, Council President and mayoral candidate Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski announces an inclusive and accessible educational program to combat domestic violence in Bayonne. Recently, Bayonne has seen an uptick in crime and last week the city was shocked by the murder of 33-year old Mely Vanessa Tafoya Mendoza who was murdered by her husband on March 2nd.
“We can’t only honor all the great things women do in our community and ignore all the hardships that women experience everyday. We have a responsibility to provide meaningful resources for those in our communities who are suffering from domestic violence and don’t know where to reach out for help” said Council President and Mayoral Candidate Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski. “Educational programs bring resources to the residents of Bayonne and takes a step in the right direction to make Bayonne a safer community by creating partnerships with nonprofits who have experience working in our community and reaching out to our homes and families.”
The Resolution introduced allocates twenty-five thousand dollars from the American Rescue Plan to various non-profits whose mission is to educate or combat domestic violence. This program would not only focus on non-profits who work mainly with women, but also seeks to bring community partners that have experience with communities of color and the LGBTQAI+ community as well.
Knowing that domestic violence doesn’t discriminate against race, sexual orientation, economic status, religion or gender identity, Ashe-Nadrowski is committed to ensuring this is an inclusive program that reaches as many residents of Bayonne as possible. “We must remember Mely Vanessa Tafoya Mendoza, and all of those whose lives have been lost to domestic violence year after year, ” said Ashe-Nadrowski. “Bayonne needs a leader who is committed to funding programs that will invest in our communities and keep our residents safe. We need to work with our community members to bring services we know will be life saving to our neighbors.”
Joining in support of Ashe-Nadrowski’s proposal is current Community Advocate Camile High. “The work has to be in the legislation. Not in conversations, not in opinions,
Ashe-Nadrowski has to introduced a Resolution to dedicate ARP money to fund education programs to combat domestic violence at the next Bayonne City Council Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 7 p.m.
