Julie was interviewed about a new law in NYC that will help victims of domestic violence by allowing paid time off work. "Owens says paid safe time should be a right for everyone. In light of the scores of women in recent days sharing their tales of abuse," she continues, "passing legislation that guarantees safe time tells survivors, 'We believe you. We hear you. You are the crime victim; it is not your fault, and you deserve the time off to pursue safety and justice. You will not have to choose between your safety and the ability to earn a living for yourself and your children. '"
