For many survivors their prison is invisible through coercion, intimidation, gaslighting, financial control, isolation, stalking and the threat of violence.

Our panelists will not only help us understand what abuse look likes, they will suggest ways in which we can take a stand against domestic violence. Believing a survivor is the first step.

Panelists: BB Beltran, SASS, Phyllis Bankhurst, 90by30, Krista Chronister, PhD, University of Oregon, Sarah Stewart, Kids First!, Evelyn Salinas, Centro Latino Americano, Brittany Luna, Womenspace, Stephen Morgan, Deputy District Attorney, and Sarah Sabrai, Department of Justice.
