End the cycle of domestic violence

Domestic Violence isn’t something most of us are comfortable talking about- yet according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. The consequences of domestic and sexual violence can span generations and have huge economic and health impacts - Tragically some of these incidents end in homicide.
On The Point, we discuss how to educate the public, provide supports to survivors and end the cycle domestic violence. Plus we hear some of the performers at this year’s LadyFest MVwhich is a benefit festival to support the work of CONNECT to End Violence on Martha’s Vineyard.
