Solano County Domestic Violence Attorneys

Preventing Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious problem throughout California and the rest of the U.S. Domestic violence cases often get a lot of media attention. Laws to prevent domestic violence and to penalize domestic violence offenders often get a lot of political support and support by voters because of public awareness of domestic violence and its effects.

There are specific actions that can be taken in order to help prevent domestic violence and abuse in the first place:

  • Education. Educating others about what domestic violence is and what the effects of violence are is helpful so people can recognize why domestic violence is not the answer.
  • Promoting domestic violence awareness means that more people will be aware of domestic violence statistics and what some of the broader effects of domestic violence are. It is important that people can recognize the signs of domestic violence and will know what to do about it.
  • Speaking out against domestic violence.
  • Organizing and attending fundraisers for domestic violence shelters increases community awareness and helps people who have already been the victims of domestic abuse.
  • Report domestic violence to the proper authority. If you witness domestic violence or are a victim yourself, you can get help by contacting law enforcement in your area. It is all too often that a victim does not or cannot speak out, and help may be needed.
  • Volunteering to help an organization that helps domestic violence victims and that increases awareness can help to prevent domestic violence.
