22nd Annual Men Against Domestic Violence campaign kicks off February 6th.
Now in its 22nd year, the Men Against Domestic Violence kicks off with the annual Radiothon which runs from Monday, February 6 through Friday, February 10, 2017, on-the-air on WCTY 97.7, WNLC 98.7 FM, ROXY 100.9 FM and WICH 1310 AM. Tune into any of these stations to hear on-air spots featuring over 20 men from throughout our community, sharing why they are a Man Against Domestic Violence and why they support the efforts of Safe Futures.
Hall Radio on-air personalities, including Jimmy Lane, Shelly Martinez, Dave Elder, Chris Dillon and Franco, will host their regular programs throughout the campaign while sharing information about Safe Futures, real-life stories of survival and making a difference, as well as discuss how our community is impacted by domestic violence. Listeners are directed to visit a special webpage to learn more, sign a pledge against violence, list their name in the Men Against Domestic Violence list (which will appear in The Day and The Norwich Bulletin on Father’s Day), and make tax-deductible donations and pledges to benefit Safe Futures.
We are grateful to Hall Communications and its four radio stations – WCTY, WNLC, ROXY and WICH – who make this possible; to DZYNR has created web page; and to The Day and The Norwich Bulletin for their in-kind support.

Founded in 1976 as the Women’s Center of Southeastern Connecticut , Safe Futures began as an information and referral service for women entering the workforce. Today, Safe Futures operates two 24-hour hotlines, an emergency shelter, and a transitional living program for families working to rebuild lives shattered by domestic violence or sexual assault. Safe Futures also provides counseling and advocacy, case management, court advocacy, support groups, and educational programs for schools and community groups. All 21 towns in New London County are served by the agency.
