BettyJean will present our newest member and shero Dawn Martin who has filed an appeal in her own litigation, Martin v. Howard University , to try to correct, what she says, was an improper and unjust denial of employment " The Law Needs to Protect Victims of Stalking and Domestic Violence from Employment Discrimination and Retaliation.

Attorney Dawn Martin is urging an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that would expressly protect victims of stalking and domestic violence against employment discrimination. “Many of these victims are afraid to let their employers know that they are being stalked or are victims of domestic violence,” Martin said, “They are afraid of being fired. No woman should have to choose between her job and her safety.” 78% of stalking victims are women. 54% of female murder victims reported their stalkers to the police before being killed by them. New York City Human Rights Law does protect these victims against discrimination. Martin says that a federal statute should as well, since courts may deny the protection.

This is Our vision. Not one of us can do it all yet all of it needs done so IMAGINE if we all joined forces-- and put our talents and energies together. IMAGINE what we can accomplish collectively? I IMAGINE it every day. All for one and one for all. Not one of us should fall not one, not one! The Majority United! The time is now! Yes – this is our vision – it has never been done on this scale – 52% - but we can do it!!.
