Female or male, gay or straight, white or black, rich or poor–domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. A check of recent DV stats from New Jersey and around the United States shows that victims of domestic abuse come from every known demographic and socioeconomic strata.
What can we do to reach victims when they are so diverse? Which resources benefit all victims of domestic violence? Which resources do different groups require? How can we do a better job serving victims?
Join us on Twitter on October 18 from 2:30 – 3:30 to start an important conversation. As part of Domestic Violence National Week of Action’s “Tie in Tuesday,” we’re tying in with the lead taken by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) to get people talking about new avenues and new solutions to help victims of abuse find the path to safety and a secured future.
How can you participate?
Follow @WeinbergerLaw on Twitter and use our chat hashtags #EndDV or #EndDVinNJ. Beginning at 2: 30 pm, we will begin tweeting questions to spark discussion and connect like-minded groups in our local community and beyond.
Our goal is to foster a rich, lasting discussion that strengthens and unites those of us working to support victims and prevent future cases of abuse.
