Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy recognizes freedom from domestic violence as a fundamental human right 365 days a year amd has issued an Executive Order and Directive in support of this belief.
October may be Domestic Violence Prevention Awareness Month but Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy recognizes freedom from domestic violence as a fundamental human right 365 days a year. He has issued an Executive Order and Directive [PDF*] assuring all citizens of Albany County that all County agencies establish this as part of their policies and practices, that County government bears moral responsibility to ensure this human right and to communicate this to all municipalities and elected leaders within Albany County.
"We hosted a workshop on domestic violence prevention at the start of this month," said McCoy, "and we wanted to end the month by reminding everyone that domestic violence is an issue every day. From the day we are born, there are certain basic rights to which we are all entitled. I have issued Executive Order and Directive 12-05 to make sure domestic violence is recognized as a human rights concern by Albany County and everyone should be free from domestic violence."
