Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Poverty & DV are closely linked - poverty prevents many Philadelphians from leaving an abusive partner. To break the cycle of #DomesticViolence  in our communities, we must also break the cycle of poverty. #IDEP2021

My latest: A 7-month-old baby is dead, and the man charged with his murder was arrested twice this year for felony domestic violence — and released. District Attorney Chesa Boudin dismissed 113 of 131 felony DV cases last fall, and advocates are alarmed.

He was a great son & always first one to help others in need. His teachers still appreciate him: Neela Sathe, mother of late captain DV Sathe who was flying the flight which crash-landed at #Kozhikode  airport 18 people, including the two pilots, lost their lives in the incident.

"Don't worry it was just an isolated incident" is what is said when a murder of a woman occurs. An isolated incident that happens every 3 days and happens because she was a woman. It demeans the patterns and the cause. It fails to see that DV is a pattern not an isolated incident

This is a moment. I extend my hand to the Government to work with us for change, really change it. Let's start with fact that the bill they propose on Monday does almost nothing to improve women's safety. It's not tough on rape, it's not tough on DV, it's not tough on child abuse

It's benevolent sexism, not real internal change so you would think that would not be so scary. But oddly enough violence against women is a particular currency they rely on. They need abusers on their side. We talk around this, but a common denominator is a history of DV

I’m fascinated by respondents who are wildly offended by any comparison b/n politics & relationships. Politics *are* relationships—neither mob metaphors nor DV ones are exact analogues for what’s happening, but they’re useful frames. Power is power & narcissists have patterns.

We have seen an alarming spike in domestic violence reports during the COVID crisis. The COVID-19 DV task force chaired by @melissadderosa  has issued recommendations that NY will adopt. We will make services more survivor centered and individualized.

Unfortunately, many victims who are isolated with their abuser may not be able to safely call the DV hotline out of risk of being overheard. We want you to know: You are not alone and you are not trapped because of COVID. We will help you get safe shelter. Text 844-997-2121.

Earl Thomas has released a video on his IG account addressing, vaguely, a domestic incident that TMZ will be reporting on. In no way does he deny that something occurred. Ravens ownership mandated a zero tolerance edict for DV after Ray Rice was released.
