New CDC report highlights devastating impact of domestic violence and underscores the importance of efforts to help survivors reach economic security. As NNEDV President, Kim Gandy says, “Poverty is an abuser’s co-conspirator, helping to keep a victim trapped." #CDC #domesticviolence
Today's #SCOTUS decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby is a step backward for women's health and reproductive rights, and also for their fundamental autonomy. "All too often, abusers restrict access to contraception or force unwanted pregnancies as a means to exert power and control over their victims," said Kim Gandy, President and CEO of NNEDV. "Women, especially victims of domestic violence – not their employers or abusers – should control this important aspect of their lives."
“Everyone has the right be to safe and healthy in their relationships,” said Kim Gandy, NNEDV President & CEO. “We are proud that VAWA 2013 protects all survivors, and was the very first piece of federal legislation to explicitly prohibit discrimination against LGBT individuals. This was a big push, and it was a big win.” #HappyPride
