In the Wake of Green Bay Shooting, End Abuse Identifies Gender-Based Violence as Public Health Crisis in Wisconsin

May 4, 2021 by Elise Buchbinder

“Gender-based violence, which takes many forms including harassment, workplace violence, stalking, and domestic violence, must be understood for what it is: a community issue that requires community-based solutions.

This recent tragedy demonstrates the far-reaching ramifications of not addressing root causes of violence."
