Building a Community of Practice: Increasing Survivor Safety from Firearms
This day-long convening will explore the structural factors that contribute to gun violence and the intersection of this violence with domestic violence, effective solutions to reducing the threat of gun violence in intimate partner relationships, and current efforts to keep firearms out of the hands of domestic abusers, both within and outside of the justice system.
Intimate Partner Violence and Community Violence
This webinar will discuss the intersection of intimate partner violence and community violence. Participants will explore Institutional Analysis (IA) as an approach that communities can use to identify problematic institutional practices, typically within system responses (e.g. legal, social services, healthcare, education, etc.), which create barriers to victim safety and offender accountability. A panel of experts will then discuss community-based strategies to reduce intimate partner violence and community violence without criminal and/or civil system interventions.
