During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an uptick in domestic violence cases. It has been a challenge for individuals to navigate resources due to limited access to in-person resources.

On Thursday, October 22, 2020 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m, Rodneyse Bichotte, New York State Assembly will host the COVID-19 Domestic Violence Panel. Our President and CEO Martha Kamber will be speaking on the panel alongside our partners from Safe Horizon, Exhale to Inhale, Third Root Community Health Center, and the office of Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez.
