Community Violence Dashboard
Each year, countless women, children, and men in Spokane County suffer from the damaging effects of domestic violence, often remaining unseen and unheard. Domestic violence is violence or abuse in any form, by one person against another in a domestic setting, and includes intimate partner violence which is one specific type of domestic violence.
The mission of Spokane Regional Domestic Violence Coalition (SRDVC) is to empower and educate our collective community to End The Violence. By providing resources and tools, SRDVC focuses on prevention efforts that address the underlying causes and risk factors associated with domestic violence. By tackling these root causes, prevention initiatives aim to create long-term systemic change and promote healthy, respectful relationships. This contributes to breaking the cycle of violence, protecting future generations from experiencing or perpetrating domestic violence and fostering a society that prioritizes the well-being and safety of all its members.
The following dashboards provide data pertaining to the prevalence of violence in our community, as well as factors that contribute to both risk and protection. We acknowledge that no single data source can fully capture the intricate nature of these factors, or the full extent of domestic violence experienced in our community. In addition to these, we have produced a documentary that shares a powerful message of how we believe together we can End The Violence. We hope that this data will shed light on certain aspects of the issue and serve as a starting point for conversations aimed at advancing efforts to put an end to violence.
