Domestic violence group decries budget cuts in R.I.


A group that fights domestic violence in Rhode Island said budget cuts to a program that helps victims navigate the court system will affect hundreds of victims each month. The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence said it is calling on lawmakers to restore more than $300,000 in funding that has been cut from the court advocacy program since 2007. The cuts forced the service to close its doors on Mondays beginning this month. The program serves 8,000 victims each year.
