Domestic violence is an alarming and pervasive problem in our country. On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States. Over the course of a year, that equals more than 12 million women and men. And while a the COVID-19 pandemic or a bad economy does not cause domestic violence, it can and has made it worse. Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with RISE SLO education and communications director Christina Kaviani, PhD., and Vivien Devaney-Frice, director of In-Custody & Reentry Programs with Restorative Partners, Inc., about Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the impact of current events on the movement to end gender-based violence, and how restorative practices can support the healing journey of families who have suffered from violence.
