This November 7 – 9th the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, in tandem with Gray’s Trauma-Informed Care Services Corp and many other great organizations, will continue to broaden the focus and engage a larger community to find answers to pressing questions that impact survivors, families and communities. What happens when we shift the lens and look at domestic violence with a broader view that includes discussions with opposing and unified viewpoints?
Victim safety and holding those who harmed accountable have been central figures in the domestic violence field over the last few decades. As a result, we’ve seen significant expansion in crisis responses and legal interventions. When we look at a snapshot depicting our statewide response to domestic violence, these crisis responses and legal interventions appear as the predominant images in our picture.
This expansion has also become part of culturally responsive prevention efforts. Evidence has shown that working collaboratively leads to more effective and sustainable solutions. Collaborative efforts that bring community partners together have a greater impact across communities. Recognizing that domestic violence is one of many interconnected forms of systemic oppression, we must work together across multiple systems and social justice movements.
We know that domestic violence is a systemic pattern of behaviors that uses threats and/or acts of violence that can be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, and financial to establish and maintain power and control over another. Beliefs and behaviors are learned, grounded, and protected by social and cultural systems. At this year’s conference we will attempt to address this multidimensional societal trauma that occurs in the home, but has a domino effect into our schools, our communities, cities, state, nationally and globally. We will also explore the facets of domestic violence that don’t just occur in a silo, but are created and nurtured through social determinants of health, adverse childhood experiences and living in a society that values power and dominance, as well as many other factors.
