Domestic Violence & Workplace Violence Awareness

Did you know?

  • “The Department of Labor notes that27% of all violent events in the workplace are tied to some form of domestic violence.” ALICE
  • ” 21 percent of full-time employed adults said they were victims of domestic violence and 74 percent of that group said they’ve been harassed at work.” SHRM
  • Portage County law enforcement agencies received well over 1,000 domestic violence calls last year!

Domestic violence happens everywhere and victims come in all ages & genders! Donya Buchanan & Amy Kelly of Safer Futures joined us to chat about domestic violence and give us a snapshot of how often it happens in the Portage County area!
