October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! To bring attention to the prevalence of Domestic Violence during the COVID 19 pandemic, we will be joined by community leaders whose unique perspectives on DV issues will aide us as we broaden the platform on community programs and victim services. Please welcome: Judge Jennifer Gerard of the Riverside Superior Family Court, Katie Gilbertson, Executive Director of SAFE Family Justice Centers, and Jacquie Marroquin of the CPEDV.
As a panel, we will engage in understanding the effects of the pandemic in the domestic violence provider community and evaluate relevant strategies – In other words, were we ready?
Finally, we will explore some of the internal and external resources that were utilized to address the needs of the COVID 19 emergency climate by taking a look at where we are and where we go from here. Please join us!
