About this event

Surviving Domestic Violence During a Pandemic

When stay at home orders were issued to stop the spread of Covid-19, domestic violence victims living in abusive homes became trapped. Accessing help and escaping to safety became challenging. The reports of positive cases of Covid-19 were published alongside reports that Fresno has the highest number of calls to 911 for domestic violence in California. Following requests to assist with funerals for victims that were not able to escape alive, we bring you this presentation as a call to action for collective safety planning.
