Rhode Island’s attorney general and groups that fight domestic violence are urging state lawmakers to restore funding to a court advocacy program designed to help victims. The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence said Friday that the budget cuts are forcing the advocacy program to close its doors on Mondays beginning next week. The program assisted domestic violence victims as they navigated through the court system. It has seen its funding cut by more than $300,000 since 2007 — nearly three-quarters of its entire budget. The program serves 8,000 victims each year.
