At the League’s annual mandatory “Commissioners, Coaches and Statisticians” meeting held on July 27 at Starpoint High School, NEYSA teamed up with Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour to present information about Domestic Violence to over 300 attendees. Prompted by seeing a quote from local Domestic Violence advocate and author Linda Dynel, NEYSA’s officials decided to provide information to their participants to better educate them in Domestic Violence issues.
The quote from Ms. Dynel was “If we are ever going to end Domestic Violence, it’s going to have to start with the way that we raise our sons.” For more information from Ms. Dynel, please go to her website http://www.lindadynel.com.
