Evidence-Based Recommendations for DV Advocates

Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund commissioned a review of evidence-based, therapeutic intervention programs for children exposed to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) to offer a set of concise and practical recommendations for program staff and advocates working in the field of domestic violence. The recommendations are part of an effort to foster a cycle of learning between research and practice that honors both the importance of evidence-based approaches and wisdom that emanates from implementation.

Grant Allows SLC YWCA to Offer More Support for Domestic Violence Victims

Families in the Salt Lake area will have just a little bit more help after the YWCA announced that it won a substantial grant.

The $49,782 one-year grant was announced Wednesday and comes from the Avon Foundation for Women. According to YWCA marketing and communication manager Mike Varanakis, the money will be used to create a new position at the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center (SLAFJC). The new hire will help women impacted by domestic violence become economically self-sufficient, obtain housing and access other resources.

Remembering Those Lost to Domestic Violence in 2012

The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition invites you to remember those who lost their lives as a result of domestic violence in the last 12 months in our state.

Please join us on 2nd January 2013 at the State Capitol Building in the Rotunda area at 12 pm. We welcome members from all communities and faith groups to reflect on an issue which cuts across all cultural and spiritual divides and which we must come together to address.

Urgent Action Needed on VAWA Tribal Provisions

American Indian and Alaska Native women are abused, raped and stalked at far greater rates that any other population of women in United States – 6 out of 10 will be physically assaulted in their lifetime, and 1 in 3 Native women will be raped. Eighty-eight percent of the abuse against Native women is committed by non-Native men—but we, as citizens of the United States, permit this abuse to go unchecked because we do not allow police officers, prosecutors and judges on tribal lands to perform their legal obligations regarding these non-Native men. In other words we, citizens of the United States, have sanctioned “open season against Native American women by non-Native men”. This is simply unconscionable. Each of us has an opportunity, now, to right this wrong. 

We urgently ask you to PLEASE:
Stop whatever important thing you are doing right now
Use this number 888.269.5702 to connect to the Capitol switchboard (using this number allows NNEDV to track the number of calls being made). Then ask to be connected to your U.S. Representative or Senator.

Ask your Members of Congress to tell you that they will do one of the following acceptable things:

  • Support § 904 in S. 1925
  • Sign on as a co-sponsor or pledge their support for the Issa-Cole § 904 compromise language (HR 6625)

Forward this message to all of your programs and distribution lists and ask everyone you know to do the same

Epidemic in Utah: Call for Action

The number of deaths due to domestic violence is of epidemic proportion.  This is one of the most predictable and therefore preventable forms of homicide.  These horrific crimes affect innocent children, families, and church families as well as entire communities. 

The Utah Domestic Violence Link line and local domestic violence  programs have seen an increase in both calls for help and the ferocity of violence. 

Local programs have had to turn away more than a thousand requests for shelter due to lack of services. At the same time these key services, which have a long and proven track record in helping families access safety, have been underfunded and off the radar of many legislators. 

Despite proven success of programs, despite evidence of terrific need, despite the clear escalation of violence, the issue of domestic violence, if discussed at all, is often dismissed as a political issue. The bottom line is that domestic violence is being effectively ignored and/or dismissed as is evidenced from the lack of support for local nonprofit service programs.

Domestic Violence is a hideous crime which one in four Utah women and girls will experience. Furthermore the harm caused to innocent children who witness this abuse is devastating and long lasting.  Fully funding our domestic violence programs is simply the right thing to do.

Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is asking for your support.  If you or someone you know has been affected by domestic violence, or if you have been horrified or moved by the reports of this epidemic of domestic violence homicide in our communities, please call the Governor’s office at (801)538-1000 or (800)705-2464 this week and ask that the state of Utah do the right thing and increase its support of local nonprofit Domestic Violence Programs in fiscal year 2014.

If you or someone you know is in an unsafe relationship and you would like to know how to get help please call the Utah Domestic Violence Link line at 1-800-897-5465. All calls are confidential.

Please consider these services in your holiday gift giving – only together can we make Utah the safest place in the nation for our families.
