Domestic Violence and Quarantine's Effects
With the rising number of reports of domestic violence cases, for many, there’s a threat within the home as well as outside. This pandemic has forced citizens to stay in their homes, isolated from friends and family for extended periods of time. Abusers increase their violence when the family spends more time together like during summer vacation and Christmas time, so these quarantine conditions create a rare opportunity for them. How can community organizations reach women when they may not leave the house for their own health? Will outreach work have to evolve to meet the new conditions and demand? Panelists from New Orleans and Switzerland discuss possible effects and changes in domestic violence throughout the pandemic as well as their thoughts on how local community organizations can combat this.
