On Thursday, September 26, 2019, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. spoke out against domestic violence during the annual Gladys Ricart & Victims of Domestic Violence Memorial Walk.

The event, which is commonly known as the Brides March, was started in 2001 in honor of Gladys Ricart, a woman who was murdered in New Jersey in 1999 by her abusive former boyfriend on the day she was to wed her fiancé.

“I wish we didn’t need to have a Brides March every year, but domestic violence is still pervasive and we won’t stop until it is a thing of the past. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime. Gladys’ family will always feel the pain of her loss, but she will never be forgotten by them or by us,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
