ALBANY – May 4, 2016 – Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants and domestic violence prevention advocates gathered at the New York State Capitol for the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV)’s annual Legislative Advocacy Day. The group met with lawmakers to discuss the critical importance of legislation that supports domestic violence survivors and victims. The effort is a part of Mary Kay Inc.’s ‘Lobbying for Good’ initiative.

The legislative agenda for the day comprised of the support of multiple bills, furthering the protection of survivors and enhancing violence prevention.
