The School of Public Affairs event features a variety of speakers from across San Diego County.
Did you know that:
- One in every four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime?
- An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year?
- Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police?
Domestic violence speaks many languages, takes many forms and lives in every community. In an effort to highlight solutions, the SDSU School of Public Affairs presents a public forum, "Domestic Violence: A Crisis in Our Communities," on Tuesday, March 15.
The panel, moderated by Louis M. Rea, director of the SDSU School of Public Affairs, will feature several speakers, including:
- Bonnie Dumanis, district attorney, San Diego County
- Casey Gwinn, president, National Family Justice Center Alliance
- Verna Griffin-Tabor, executive director, Center for Community Solutions
- Reena Becerra, chair, San Diego Voices
- Ashley Walker, co-founder, San Diego Domestic Violence Council
The panel takes place 7–9 p.m., Tuesday, March 15, at the Doubletree Hotel in Mission Valley. A light reception precedes the event, starting at 6:15 p.m.
