When “Stay at Home” Isn’t Safe: Domestic Violence During COVID-19


Monday, June 8, 2020, 1:00pm to 2:00pm


Online Event

Although communities have been asked to stay home to stay safe, for many domestic violence victims, home can be a dangerous place. Spikes in intimate partner violence (IPV) and child abuse have been noted across the country and around the world since the onset of the COVID-19 stay-at-home directives as victims and witnesses of IPV and child abuse find themselves isolated within their homes and confronted with difficult decisions about when and how to seek care or shelter. In this Radcliffe webinar, scholars, public officials, community activists, and survivors join to discuss domestic violence in the midst of this public health crisis and to consider different strategies for providing services and help to those in need.
