President's Challenge Webinar: When Safer-at-Home is Not Actually Safe: Supporting Intimate Partner Violence Survivors during Quarantine
In March 2020, state governments began issuing “Safer-at-Home” orders to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. But for women living with abusive partners, being quarantined at home was anything but safe. Andrea Schneider, professor of law in the Marquette University Law School and director for the Institute for Women’s Leadership, has created a research team to analyze the effect these orders had on the prevalence of domestic abuse cases, and their impact on the wellness and mental health of survivors.

Hear how this team, in partnership with Milwaukee County Circuit Court and the Sojourner Family Peace Center, is working toward improving services for survivors during the pandemic, to enhance court processes, and to guide best practices in advising workplaces on how to respond to Intimate Partner Violence.

This project was a winner of the 2020 President's Challenge, which provided funding for innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative work addressing needs in Milwaukee’s community that have been created or magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic and representing critical areas in the community’s recovery efforts.
