SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) _ U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other well-known Connecticut men are lending their support to a new domestic violence awareness campaign.

Members of the group “Men Make a Difference, Men Against Domestic Violence” are scheduled on Friday to join representatives of Interval House, a Hartford-based organization that provides services to victims of domestic violence, to unveil the “Stay Safe, Pass it On” campaign.

Besides Blumenthal, Attorney General George Jepsen, Central Connecticut State University basketball coach Howie Dickenman and Dr. William Petit, whose wife and two daughters were killed in a 2007 home invasion, are scheduled to be on hand for the event planned in Simsbury.

Several television and radio personalities are also expected to participate.
