Giants Take Part In Domestic Violence Seminar
The Giants on Monday were one of the first two NFL teams (Denver was the other) to participate in an educational session about domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.
"They taught us about domestic violence, educated us about sexual assault and then educated us about child abuse," Prince Amukamara said. "They educated us about all three situations and told us that there is help out there if any of us are dealing with it or know someone who is dealing with it. They told us to not let it linger. If we hear a teammate who is talking about it, hold them accountable."
"I definitely think it was a good (program) in light of all the things that have happened," defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said. "(With) everything that has been brought to the public eye, I think it is good that the league is taking the initiative. We, as a league, want to be at the forefront of opening up the floor for discussion. It is something that we needed to hear."
