BOROUGH HALL - Brooklyn took a stand against violence Monday with the announcement of a task force during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Advocates and lawmakers gathered at Borough Hall to unveil the school-based Domestic Violence Youth Task Force, which state Sen. Eric Adams helped form.

The FaithTrust Institute is also working to collect 4,000 signatures online to take a stand against the abuse.

Officials say minority and immigrant women are most at risk to suffer at the hands of a loved one.
