Chapin, Roraback Honored for Commitment to Ending Domestic Violence

October 3, 2011

State Senator Andrew Roraback and State Representative Clark Chapin have been named distinguished “First 100” men by the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV).

Roraback and Chapin, both members of the Speaker’s Task Force on Domestic Violence, are among the first 100 male leaders – including business, government and community leaders – to make a commitment to ending domestic violence in Connecticut.

“There are so many ways to make a positive difference in our communities,” Roraback said. “As legislators, we will continue to move aggressively in deterring and prosecuting domestic violence. No one should have to live their life in fear.”

“Domestic violence cuts across all races, all income brackets, all levels of education – and both sexes,” Chapin said. “Our goal is simple: we want Connecticut to be a model for the rest of the country in terms of domestic violence prevention.”

At a September 28th ceremony at the Crown Plaza in Cromwell, CT, CCADV officials applauded the legislators’ dedication and said they look forward to a continued relationship.
