WSCADV in the News

type spelling the word news on a vintage typewriter, great concept for blogs, journalism, news, newsletters, press releases, authors and the mass media

WSCADV has been in the news quite a bit in recent weeks. Check out what we had to say!

Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness

  • The Seattle Times – “No one should ever have to choose between staying with an abusive partner or becoming homeless.” – Linda Olsen, WSCADV’s Housing Program Coordinator

The importance of sick and safe leave for survivors of domestic and sexual violence

  • Everett Herald – “When survivors have access to more money, they have more options and a greater ability to make choices that keep them safe.” – Traci Underwood, WSCADV’s Economic Justice Coordinator
  • Huffington Post – “We envision a world where people make choices about their relationship based on what’s best for them and their children, not based on the financial impact of those decisions.” – Kelly Starr, WSCADV’s Managing Director
  • Quartz – “Many have to make the choice between paying rent or the utility bill or going to court to get a protection order.” – Traci Underwood, WSCADV’s Economic Justice Coordinator

The prevalence of domestic violence and the role we all can play

  • Yakima Herald – “This is a community problem that we are only going to solve together.” – Kelly Starr, WSCADV’s Managing Director
  • The Spokesman Review – “Victims tend to turn to friends, family, and co-workers for help much of the time … If people are turning to community rather than systems, we need people to be involved and we need the community as a whole involved. That’s where the solution is going to be.” – Kelly Starr, WSCADV’s Managing Director

Why data privacy is critical

  • Real Change – “Voter records are an interesting case study of a bigger issue that I see, which is the largely uncritical push toward open records and open data of all kinds … I don’t think that people are aware of the potential misuse.”  – Tamaso Johnson, WSCADV’s Public Policy Coordinator

Our In Her Shoes: Living with Domestic Violence and In Their Shoes: Teens and Dating Violence training kits in action in communities around the state

  • Komo News (television) – “Seattle police have a new way to teach about domestic violence.”
  • The Daily Evergreen – “This interactive workshop allowed those in attendance to go through the stories of different men and women who have experienced domestic violence … Conducting a workshop with hands-on experiences is one of the most effective ways to help someone learn something and connect with it on a deeper level.”
