I believe CONNECT sets the standard in so many ways for professional and dedicated, compassionate leadership in the field of all forms of interpersonal violence, especially the myriad realities of violence against women. Each program I have attended, supported, and known about presented by CONNECT has provided hope in difficult social and criminal aspects of our city, nation, and world. Every staff member brings dedicated, envisioning, creative, hardworking and transformative responses in their approaches to advocate, educate, and change relationships and situations into hopeful awareness, response and change. I commend you for including them on a list of stellar non-profit organizations and offer my heartfelt gratitude to each of them. They do this work because they care! I have come alongside many instances of appropriate response in the past two years to hearts crying out to be heard, allowed voice, approaches towards safety and empowered in non-violent, peaceful living without exception. They have helped launch our series on non-violent living in the Episcopal Diocese of New York this year. the Rev. Dr. Sally MacNichol and Mr. Quentin Walcott as co-executive directors bring a sense of faith, hope and joy to this work despite the seriousness of it. They truly deserve every available opportunity to be of service in our communities. Faithfully, Dr. Victoria J. Rollins, Rise Again Ministries and task force facilitator L.O.V.E.
