The Houston Area Women's Center
Our Statement on the NFL's New Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Policy
I didn't get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will."
The Houston Area Women's Center applauds this statement, and the open letter to team owners, released by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. His plan to address the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault in the NFL has the potential to make lasting and meaningful change -- not only for league members and their families, but also for our society. As we've said countless times before, we all play a role in ending violence, and we appreciate this step in the right direction.Read More
