Domestic Violence during COVID-19
Our University of Minnesota community is going through a difficult time. We are very thankful that our leaders are taking COVID-19 seriously, but we are also concerned that victims/survivors in Minnesota and throughout our country may be cut off from the resources and support they need.
Crisis situations always have a heavy impact on victims/survivors of violence, especially those who are also members of marginalized communities (such as people of color, LGBTQI+ folks, people with lower incomes). Likewise, we expect that COVID-19 will increase risk factors for violence and isolate victims/survivors.
The following resources were created to both raise awareness and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on victims/survivors.
