Good for the San Jose Mercury News. Sunday’s top story (p. 1, upper right-hand column headline) was “A stain the fans cannot ignore.” The story centered on the topic of how astute, sensitive fans … otherwise known as “soul-searching fans” … are declaring the Sunday ritual is no longer guilt-free. “Many are wrestling with conflicted feelings about their love of the game and their revulsion over the recent spate of domestic violence and child abuse cases.”
San Francisco’s Supervisors have issued a resolution condemning the 49ers handling of domestic violence cases.
Supervisors in San Francisco weigh in on the 49ers handling of domestic violence issues on their team, condemning the decision to allow Ray McDonald to keep playing while under investigation.
“Bench Domestic Violence” is not only a clever play on words; it is also an extremely important message. Let’s raise the shades in homes where men abuse the women they claim to love and let the sun shine in exposing the secret and bringing light.
It is time to engage healthy men to walk together towards a world of gender equity and peace in our homes. Please join our campaign and bench domestic violence. It starts today. We can’t wait any longer. The opportunity to challenge ourselves is now.

Thank you to West Valley College Small Group Communication class who came to our Community Office on Friday, April 25, for hours of spring cleaning! They cleaned and disinfected our Kid’s Club and our play areas for children…a task that was definitely overdue! This was a daunting task and they did it with a smile. They also made their t-shirts…the red hand print on the shoulder represents a “hand to tell someone you care when you don’t have the words”. We are truly grateful for their generous act of service…and for spreading the word about ending domestic violence in our community!
