This has been compounded by the images of violence perpetrated by police, looters, and protest disrupters. We know that these stressors only increase the risks to victims of domestic violence

Voices4Change is a grassroots organization whose goal is to raise awareness of the risks of intimate partner violence during pregnancy, elevate the voices of survivors, and end intimate partner homicide.
This effort grew out the documentary film Finding Jenn's Voice which examines the risks of homicide during pregnancy and explores the nature of abusive relationships by looking beyond the black eye.
Intimate partner homicides are on the rise with an average of 4 women killed each day in the United States. 28% of women in the United States experience physical abuse in their lifetime. Worldwide, 50,000 women are killed by intimate partners or family members. Voices4Change provides information, a forum for discussion, and tools to help change these horrific statistics.
On the eve of International Women’s Day and just prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Voices4Change creator Tracy Schott reflects on the impact of worldwide violence against women and the need for all of us to come together to stop intimate partner homicide.
