[NJ] OIDV survivor Clara Colon: "I Plea for anyone to help me and my daughters"
Clara Colon - a survivor, mother, and voice against police officer-involved domestic violence - is about to go to her divorce trial on April 12th and has used her blog to widen her plea for help. Clara fears the worst based on what she shares that she has already endured from courts and authorities - an exhaustive trail of inaction after reporting years of domestic abuse by her Elizabeth New Jersey police officer husband. Below is the final paragraph of her plea. Please visit her blog to read her whole public statement to New Jersey lawmakers: Please Help My family...Time is ticking
