Join us for an important conversation about the impact that investing in prevention and early intervention strategies can have on reducing domestic violence. As outlined in the Little Hoover Commission report, now is the time to invest, especially given the increase of domestic violence over the past year. By increasing state level coordination of violence prevention efforts, supporting successful state and local programs, leveraging federal resources, and directing funds to promote prevention, California can continue to lead the nation in preventing and ending domestic violence.
During the Briefing we will:
Learn about the findings from recent surveys sponsored by the Blue Shield ofCalifornia Foundation about the unequal impacts of COVID-19 on Californians, and support for addressing domestic violence as a societal issue.
Advance innovative strategies to disrupt domestic violence, increase coordination across state agencies, create supportive environments for families to flourish, and address systemic inequities that contribute to violence.
