Local Man Sworn-In on Domestic Violence Commission
Charles Campbell II, of Moore County, is among 11 recently appointed representatives who were sworn in Sept. 14 as members of the Domestic Violence Commission of the N.C. Council for Women (CFW).
Each member has been appointed to serve two-year terms by members of the N.C. General Assembly.
"The Domestic Violence Commission is very important to citizens of North Carolina as we seek opportunities to improve victim services, increase public awareness, and inform legislators about issues that impact the lives of women and families," said CFW Executive Director Beth Briggs.
Karen Parker, of Mecklenburg County, chief of strategic initiatives at United Family Services, is chair of the Domestic Violence Commission. The 35-member board assesses statewide needs related to domestic violence and collaborates with the N.C. Council for Women to strengthen existing domestic violence programs.
Additionally, the Commission examines the status and needs of families in their efforts to live in a violence-free environment.
