DV and Gun Violence: A Co-Existing Public Health Crisis
Webinar Recording – October 2022
Firearm violence and domestic violence are public health crises in the United States. In 2020, there were over 45,000 firearm deaths in the U.S. and twice as many nonfatal firearm injuries. Access to firearms increases the risk of homicides, suicides, and unintentional injuries, including domestic violence injuries and fatalities. Presenters will share creative policies and strategies to prevent and reduce the risks associated at the intersection of partner violence and guns, including domestic violence protection orders and extreme risk protection orders.
