CONTENT: Press Release

Sacramento, March 6, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Mary Kay Inc. and members of the Mary Kay independent sales force, together with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (the Partnership) are coming to the State Capitol to raise awareness about the importance of domestic violence program funding. As part of the annual Legislative Action Day on March 6th, Mary Kay representatives will help educate California lawmakers about crucial counseling, education and prevention programs, and the importance of state support for these life-saving services.

“Mary Kay believes that everyone deserves a safe and healthy relationship which is why we are deeply committed to preventing and ending domestic violence,” said Theresa Flores, Manager of Government Relations for Mary Kay Inc. “The opportunity to partner with The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence goes a long way in raising awareness about this often silent epidemic so victims are no longer in the shadows and lawmakers can help make meaningful change to protect women and their families.”

Partnership Executive Director Kathy Moore said that alliances with corporate partners are a key part of the Partnership’s public policy and education efforts.

“Domestic violence affects the entire community, not just the individual couple,” she said. “Mary Kay’s long-term commitment to this issue makes them an ideal partner to remind lawmakers that all their constituents have a stake in domestic violence services.”
