Event Title:

Community Intelligence, The Making Connections Network and Prevention Institute Present - Understanding the Impact of Domestic Violence on Women and Girls of Color and What Can Be Done About It: A Discussion on (a) Health Equity and Multisector Approaches to Prevent Domestic Violence; and, (b) An Analysis of a Violence Policy Center Study Examining Homicides Involving One Female Murder Victim and One Male Offender

Meeting Purpose

(a) To develop a statewide approach to preventing DV in California, it’s important to first understand the extent and nature of the problem of DV. While DV occurs in all communities, research shows that specific communities have is proportionately higher rates. To prevent DV across communities and achieve significant reductions across the State, disparities in rates of DV must be understood and addressed. Inequities in rates of DV, like other inequities in health and safety, refer to differences that are unnecessary and avoidable but, and in addition, are considered unfair and unjust. Inequities in DV and other health inequities are related both to historic and present-day practices and policies of public and private institutions that result in diminished opportunity for certain populations.1 A health equity approach seeks to understand, and then to address, the factors that contribute to unnecessary, avoidable, unfair, and unjust inequities, and to promote “an equal opportunity to achieve optimal health.”2; and,

(b) To discuss report that found, Black women are disproportionately victimized in single victim/single offender incidents homicide incidents. Firearms, especially handguns, were the most common weapons used by males to murder black females. When the murder weapon could be identified, 585 of black female victims were shot and killed with guns. Within that group, 78% were killed with a handgun. The study found that in 2015, 476 black females were murdered by males in single victim/single offender incidents, at a rate of 2.43 per 100,000. In comparison, the rate for white women murdered by males for that year was 0.96 per 100,000. Nationwide, across all races, 1,686 females were murdered by males in single victim/single offender incidents in 2015, at a rate of 1.12 per 100,000.

When: December 11th, 2017

Where: The California Endowment, 1000 N. Alameda Ave., LA, CA 90012

What: The dialogue will focus on (a) a report by Prevention Institute titled "A Health Equity and Multisector Approach to Preventing Domestic Violence" that seeks to develop statewide approaches towards preventing/addressing DV; and, (b): the results of a Violence Policy Center study examining homicides involving one female murder victim and one male offender. The study found that 'a black female is far more likely to be killed by an intimate partner; more than 13x as many black females were killed by a male they knew than by a stranger; and, 78% were killed with a handgun.
