Knowledge Is Power Proclamation

WHEREAS, the social blight of domestic violence has continued to burden our communities, spilling over into schools and places of work, affecting people from every walk of life, and though abuse may occur in the seclusion of a private residence, its effects scar the face of our communities; and

WHEREAS, in the United States, we have strict laws intended to hold domestic abusers accountable for their conduct by bringing them to justice, laws alone are not enough and a comprehensive, coordinated approach must shape our strategy to create violence free communities; and

WHEREAS, in an effort to create violence free communities, officials from every segment of the criminal justice system, Federal, State, and local leaders, health care professionals, teachers, employers, friends and neighbors must assist those who are seeking violence free, healthy relationships in their homes and communities.

NOW THEREFORE, I, NERISSA CARTER and KNOWLEDGE IS POWER CHARITABLE FOUNDATION, do hereby proclaim that NERISSA CARTER AND KNOWLEDGE IS POWER CHARITABLE FOUNDATION will strive to create healthy relationships in our personal lives and help our communities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 18th day of January, 2006.

Notice the circumstance, then change the circumstance. Make a commitment to create peace in your community.
