Dozens rally in White Plains in hopes of ending domestic violence

Men and women rallied in White Plains today to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Dozens gathered in front of the county courthouse to try and make the public aware of just how common domestic violence is.

The staff from My Sister's Place, an organization that provides legal aid, shelter and emergency services to those suffering from domestic violence, say one in four women will be impacted in some way by domestic violence.

They say the tragedy in Cross River is an example that abuse can happen in any community.

Advocates hope to use this case as a warning for women in abusive relationships.

The horrific triple murder-suicide occurred in the middle of domestic violence awareness month.
