International Virtual Summit on Domestic/Family Violence in the COVID-19 Era
Warnings and reports show a significant rise in rates of exposure to Domestic/Family Violence during COVID-19 worldwide have been alarming. COVID-19 has mercilessly ripped open our assumptions regarding how we live with one another; and at our homes, in particular. “Sheltering in place” — the primary structural protective measure against COVID-19 — has rendered an untold number of already vulnerable individuals and groups not only more dangerously defenseless but, when unable to flee, seek or receive help, voiceless and hopeless.
The International Virtual Summit will be a meeting over three consecutive mornings (9:00-13:00 EST), which would allow interested people from all over the world to participate. The first two days, 2-3 panels each, will focus on the various vulnerable groups in the home(s).The third morning will aim for a comparative & integrative roundtable discussion across populations and the presenters.The last segment will report recommendations for an Integrative Agenda for Action that would reassert and reawaken awareness of the importance of people, agencies and issues discussed; and lead to a commitment by all stakeholders to attain integrative prevention and healing.
