AGENDA:

  1. Domestic Violence: It's worsened since the pandemic. And it affects people--especially women and children-- across the socio-economic spectrum. At this October session, CB8 will commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month by addressing this persistent form of violence, both nationally and in our own community. Will domestic violence continue to worsen? Specifically, who is at risk? What more can we do to alleviate this pernicious problem? Expert speakers will address domestic violence trends, nationally, and on the Upper East Side. Speakers will provide data on the trends and explain why this form of violence affects people of all incomes and ages, where victims can get help, and what further steps are needed to eradicate this problem.
