Mayo Women’s Support Services are calling on election candidates in Mayo prioritise the issue of violence against women in their campaigns.
With the launch of #NoMoreExcuses2020, a National Manifesto run by Safe Ireland, MWSS implore the 15 candidates in the county to sign up to the national campaign.
The agency is also encouraging local candidates to tackle the issue of homelessness for those experiencing domestic violence.
They have extended an invitation to all candidates to an event at their centre, tomorrow at 11.30am.
Bernadette Byrne, Assistant Manager at Mayo Women Supports Service, explains the five initiatives they are calling on candidates to sign up to for the next Dail.
