Gang Violence and Domestic Violence
Thursday, March 19th
12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
This webinar focuses on an emerging area of interest – the intersection of domestic violence and gang violence. This session explores the relationship between family violence and community violence, barriers that victims of gang-affiliated batterers and/or victims who are gang-affiliated themselves face in accessing domestic violence services, and strategies for better serving this population. This session considers how domestic violence service providers can work with gang intervention agencies to best serve communities impacted by gang violence, highlighting the early success of the Los Angeles Gang and Domestic Violence Nexus Committee.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the prevalence and basic dynamics of gang violence
- Identify unique barriers that victims of gang-affiliated batterers and/or victims who are gang-affiliated themselves face in accessing domestic violence services
- Consider strategies for collaboration with community violence agencies to best serve this population as victims and survivors of domestic violence
