Domestic Violence Awareness Day at Nationals Park

The Washington Nationals and Becky’s Fund will host Domestic Violence Awareness Day at Nationals Park on Friday, July 3, when the team plays the Atlanta Braves at 6:35pm. Becky’s Fund is a public charity dedicated to domestic violence awareness and prevention. The Nationals have joined the fight against this human rights offense and invite their fans to strike out domestic violence with Becky’s Fund.

District of Columbia Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas will present a resolution passed by the DC Council prior to the start of the game, declaring July 3, 2009 “Domestic Violence Awareness Day” in Washington, DC, and will present The Bill of Domestic Violence Rights. Councilmember Thomas will challenge Nationals fans and District residents to join the fight against Domestic Violence, which affects one in every three women in their lifetime.  Nationals fans may visit the Community Desk, located in the Left Field V, for more information on Becky’s Fund, to make donations, and for the chance to win t-shirts and autographed memorabilia.
