With a not-so-veiled reference to the federal government shutdown, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday reaffirmed and strengthened the city’s commitment to victims of domestic violence.
“We, as a city, are not going to let Washington’s dysfunction prevent us from doing what we need to do to protect all of the mothers and girlfriends,” Emanuel told a Thompson Center plaza rally held to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month. MORE
