Here are a few articles on domestic violence legislation coming up on the state level -
We are pleased to announce that new bills were introduced in the Senate and Assembly S7638/A10264 on June 8th. These bills are the result of a joint effort between the Senate, Assembly and Governor Cuomo. While these bills are not specifically named Jilly’s Law, they have incorporated the specifics of Jilly’s Law into one bill along with other much-needed legal protection for victims of domestic violence. Hopefully we have done our part to make New York State a much safer place for victims of domestic violence.

The Reality Store, which is trademarked by BPW Indiana, is a financial simulation allowing high school students (ages 15-18) to choose their future careers and make decisions about their lifestyles based on their financial savvy. The Career Development Opportunities Inc, 501 C (3) members have been sponsoring the New York State Women Inc Youth Leadership Conference for the last several years by presenting the Reality Store to high school students.
The Capital Region Women’s Network (CRWN) partnered with the Troy Boys and Girls Club in Troy, NY to offer The Reality Store Program on June 8, 2012. About 10 teenage girls got a taste of what it is like to manage finances in the adult world during this simulation event. The young women had an opportunity to allocate a month’s salary among typical expenses such as housing, food, transportation, and clothing. After selecting a career, the girls were given an appropriate after-tax monthly income, and had to draw chances to discover their marital and parental status. Then they proceeded to one of about a dozen stations to make spending decisions, with the goal of not spending more than they earned in a month.
