Coalition Chronicles 35-2: Staff Picks

We invite you to read the September 2016 issue of the Chronicles: Staff Picks. For this issue, End Abuse staff submitted short reviews of books, podcasts, songs, speeches...we basically included any type of media, looking to share items that stood out to us and focused directly or indirectly on our work to end gender violence. As you can imagine, this took us in lots of different directions. We hope you will peruse this short publication and find something that speaks to you. We would also like to gather and share your picks! Check out this issue to find out how to submit your recommended reading (or listening or viewing) by October 15, 2016.

Coalition Chronicles 35-1: Movement Building

This issue of the Chronicles begins with reflections from Patti Seger on re-igniting the movement to end gender violence in Wisconsin. Executive directors Beth Schnorr (Harbor House, Appleton) and Naomi Cummings (Bridge to Hope, Menomonie) offer their perspectives on the future of services, an initiative that has brought together local domestic abuse and sexual assault service providers, state coalitions, and national partners to explore ways to redefine our work and support victims and survivors as we work towards social change. Inside you will also find a discussion of advocacy to eliminate racial disparities in Wisconsin, by Tony Gibart, and a celebration of Voces de la Frontera’s recent defeat of anti-immigrant legislation, featuring Gricel Santiago-Rivera speaking about what that means for immigrant and mixed-status families, victims and their children.

Coalition Chronicles 34-3: Focus on Healthy Teen Relationships

This issue of the Chronicles shares resources and ideas about how to support teens and how to recognize signs of abuse.  It also highlights some recent teen dating violence prevention initiatives that WI communities have engaged in, including the Growing Roots grant and the work of its recipients; the Teen Council and it’s September retreat; and the Summit on Healthy Teen Relationships coming up in April 2016. It also showcases local programs and initiatives, and features teen/youth voices as survivors and as organizers and activists in the intervention and prevention of violence.

Coalition Chronicles 34-2: Intersection of Domestic Abuse, Mental Health & Substance Use

This issue of the Coalition Chronicles considers the connections between domestic violence, substance use and mental health. Wisconsin domestic and sexual violence services providers work at the intersection of these issues, seeking to help victims survive, heal and thrive. In some communities, resources that could help with this journey exist minimally or not at all. This issue looks at these complex problems, including interviews that highlight survivor journeys and some of the innovative strategies that WI advocates employ in their work with victims.

Coalition Chronicles 34-1: LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence Intervention & Prevention WI

In this issue of the Chronicles, we consider intervention and prevention of intimate partner violence among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in Wisconsin: what is working here and elsewhere, what are some of the stumbling blocks with services, and what has changed with regard to law, policy, mass media and social media.

We asked local programs what they have done to be more inclusive of LGBT people, and you'll find their responses in this issue. Inside you will also find a summary of a recent webinar series offered by the WI Department of Children and Families (DCF) about accessible, inclusive domestic abuse services and policies. Attorney Christopher Krimmer brings readers up to date on same-sex marriage equality law. Finally, we have selected resources to share, including a sample of "Acceptance Journeys" produced by Milwaukee's Diverse and Resilient.

Coalition Chronicles 33-3: Homicide Prevention

Following a domestic violence homicide, communities often ask themselves what they could have done to prevent the tragedy and how they might better respond to high risk cases of domestic violence in the future. Some hopeful news is that victim-centered and evidence-based approaches to homicide prevention are being developed in some areas of the country and in the state of Wisconsin.

This issue of the Chronicles explores the difference between assessing risk and lethality, views some risk and lethality assessment tools, and highlights national and local DV homicide prevention initiatives. It considers questions to ask before administering an assessment tool, and lists relevant resources.  Whether or not engaging in risk or lethality assessments is right for your community at this time, we hope you’ll find this issue useful and thought-provoking.

Report: Focus Groups Conducted with African American Female Victims of Domestic Violence in WI, 2014

Data show that African American women victims are over-represented as recipients of local domestic violence program services in WI, and in the rates of intimate partner homicide, both as victims and as perpetrators.  During 2012 and 2013, End Abuse held a series of focus groups to amplify the voices of the women whose stories were behind the statistics. African American women survivors of domestic abuse shared their experiences, opinions and ideas during these meetings.

We learned through our discussions with these women that they greatly appreciate the work of local domestic violence agencies. We also heard how profoundly their stories were shaped by the legacy of historical trauma, institutional racism, and discrimination, and for some women, chronic and acute poverty. Read the full report for more information about this critical issue.

Coalition Chronicles 33-2: Domestic Abuse & Prison

This issue of the Chronicles explores the complex connection between domestic abuse and prison. Inside you will find information about many facets of this connection: the experiences of abuse as risk factors for incarceration, collateral consequences of going to prison, a look at related problems such as drug abuse and mental illness, and more.  You will also find resources that can help survivors with the process of reentry, and you will read about some of the courageous women who have survived both abuse and prison to share their stories

Coalition Chronicles 33-1: Continuing the Conversation

This issue of the Chronicles reflects on the November 2013 statewide conference, Transform the Conversation: Explore. Expand. Create. The conference allowed people from across Wisconsin, who care deeply about ending domestic abuse and sexual assault, a rare opportunity to share great ideas and practices with each other. End Abuse didn't want the experience to end there, so we asked participants to share with readers, their reflections on the conference and its impact on their current thinking and practices. 

Inside you will find their responses, photos from the event, links to videos of our keynote presenters, and more.

Coalition Chronicles 32-3: Violence Against Women...A Global Reality

It connects you to information and explorations of related issues such as the link between children’s and women’s well-being and the impact of trauma worldwide. It also highlights individual and community rays of hope in expanded immigration protections, organized acts of resistance, and celebrations of strength and resilience.

Coalition Chronicles 32-2: Violence in Relationships Across the Lifespan

Throughout our lives, close relationships with family and friends are an important part of who we are. Many times complicated relationships continue throughout our lives, for better or for worse. In one family, there can be more than one person who experiences victimization and survives abuse; likewise there can be multiple perpetrators of abuse. Each of their experiences will be unique. This issue of the Chronicles highlights an important aspect of advocacy—helping survivors of any age or ability to heal and enhance other relationships in their lives.

Coalition Chronicles 32-1: To Honor and Protect

This Coalition Chronicles explores the complex relationship between the military and domestic violence.  

Coalition Chronicles 31-2: Paving the Way for Trauma-Informed Practice in the Domestic and Sexual Violence Movement

In our work as advocates, we have often focused on the immediacy of the events that happened in the most recent victimization. Trauma-informed practice helps us to understand that trauma impacts can exist within us for many years, they can be stirred up, and can spill out when triggered by other events that remind them of a past trauma they have experienced.

The benefit of learning trauma-informed practice is that it starts with our already existing advocacy practices of trying to understand what happened, but asks us to dig deeper, learning and understanding more about the person as a whole being. When we take the time and work to truly understand what happened, recently and historically, to each individual who comes to our door for support and help, we know the healing can truly begin.

Coalition Chronicles 31-1: Taking the Pulse-Evaluation Resources and Insights

Crafting a concise plan into programming that includes evaluation can have a tremendous impact on services and all the work we do.  WCADV has begun thinking about evaluation as a wraparound effort – assessment, implementation and reflection.  Evaluation is the work we do first and the decisions we make to get a project going.  It’s connected to our daily, weekly or monthly endeavors to accomplish our goals.  And it is ways we measure if we succeed and to what degree.

Coalition Chronicles 30-3: Organizing: Power to the People to Prevent Domestic Violence

This Coalition Chronicles is a project of WCADV’s Prevention Workgroup and represents the final entry of a year-long series on Prevention of Domestic Violence.

Coalition Chronicles 30-2: Primary Prevention Building Blocks: Changing Social Norms

Violence against women, and all types of interpersonal violence, is also supported by social norms. Norms are standards, attitudes, and beliefs – rooted in culture and tradition – that are so imbedded in our daily lives that we often aren’t conscious of the role they play in influencing the way we act and shaping how we see the world. Norms are much more than just habits; yet as we’ve seen with norms related to smoking, they can be shifted. This issue of Coalition Chronicles explores how we can do that.

Coalition Chronicles 30-1: Violence Prevention Fundamentals – Building a Foundation

Can we end domestic violence?  We must prevent it from happening in the first place.  All WCADV journals for this year (2011) will focus on the topic of PREVENTION!  Enjoy the first of three editions.

Coalition Chronicles 29-4: Connected Cultures

December 2010 Issue: Through WCADV's Connected Cultures Leadership Institute (CCLI), we engaged in a year-long educational process with survivors of violence and/or women from communities of color. Many of the 2010 CCLI graduates contributed to this issue of the WCADV Coalition Chronicles.

Coalition Chronicles 29-2: Advocacy For Survivors of Abuse in Later Life

October 2010 Issue

Coalition Chronicles 28-3: Racism

December 2009 Issue: At its core, domestic violence is a form of oppression. Victims of color, immigrant and/or refugee victims often also face the oppression of racism, causing greater barriers and intersecting layers of abuse. As a movement, we are challenged to examine the ways that our own individual and institutional racism contribute to disparate services for victims of color.
