Data show that African American women victims are over-represented as domestic violence service recipients in WI, and in rates of intimate partner homicide, both as victims and as perpetrators.

Please join us to discuss the focus group findings, and to explore ways they can inform, and transform, our work. See Details for more information and to register.
