There is a silent but deadly epidemic in our society. Domestic violence killed seventeen people, including children, in November in the Portland area. Service providers are doing all we can to let survivors know there is a way out, but we can't do it alone. It is important to get people thinking about the violence in the homes in our community that affects 1 in 3 women and countless children. Chiquita Rollins, the Multnomah County Domestic Violence Coordinator and Commisioner Dan Salzman, both play vital roles battling this epidmic and could provide and insightful discussion on the causes of domestic violence and what we can do as a community to start saving victims' lives. Thank you for your consideration of this topic.
