About the Forum:
The months-long coronavirus pandemic has posed tremendous risks for domestic violence victims and their families. This virtual forum will bring together a panel of experts who’ll explore the impact on victims and the services and support available to this vulnerable population. In addition to the dangers of quarantine with an abuser, survivors experience many issues, including economic insecurity, housing inaccessibility and medical and legal challenges, to name a few. The panelists will address ways agencies and the community can provide enhanced safety and support for survivors on their path toward self-sufficiency.
