President Obama Appoints Domestic Violence Advisor

Guest Author - Jeanette Stingley

Vice President Joe Biden announced June 26th that there would be an advisor to the President in the White House on Domestic Violence issues. Her name is Lynn Rosenthal and she has been a long time advocate for Domestic Violence. She will also work closely with government agencies to enforce domestic violence policies.

Rosenthal was executive director of the National Network to End Domestic Violence from 2000 to 2006. And she worked as director of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The appointing of an advisor, especially one with so much experience and passion about the issue like Rosenthal, is showing support finally from the highest authorities of our government in America. In 1994, Joe Biden then part of the Senate Judiciary Committee helped write the Violence Against Women Act. When I learned Biden was running with Obama, I was hoping Biden would get Domestic Violence back to one of the important issues the government deals with. During his announcement of Rosenthalís appointment, Biden said: "What I'm about to say is not a knock or a criticism on the last administration or anybody else," Biden said, but "one of the sins of omission is this has not been a front and center issue for the last eight years on the national agenda. It used to be." This is very encouraging. Will the Obama/Biden government help victims and survivors?

Rosenthal and Biden will be working together to with several agencies to rework old policies and create new ones. I am thrilled about this and will be watching this closely and of course, I will report here of any developments.
