DV LEAF Earth Day Panel: The Intersection of Domestic Violence and Climate Change
Join DV LEAP and our panel of experts and activists from Anacostia to Alaska as they discuss how climate change is a risk-multiplier for intimate partner violence (IPV) and domestic abuse. Specifically, they will address the impact of environmental degradation on rates of IPV; current research that links extreme weather events to increased violence; the need for survivors' voices in the creation of robust policies to tackle this link; and the curative power of nature to help heal trauma and the Earth.

Charlene Aqpik Apok - Gender Justice & Healing Director, Native Movement

Louise Brady- K'Asheechtlaa - Lead Operations Manager, Park Ranger, Program Manager, Sitka Tribe of Alaska

David Johnson - Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Political Science, Purdue University
