  • Membership Meeting: Firearms

    November 3, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
    YWCA East Cherry Branch, 2820 E Cherry St, Seattle, WA 98122, USA

    There will be socializing for the first half hour. The meeting will start at 9:30 am.

    Firearms and domestic violence are a lethal pair. When abusers have access to guns we know that survivors and the greater community are at risk. Survivors are fives time more likely to be murdered if there are guns in the home, and research shows that prohibiting abusers from possessing or purchasing firearms reduces the risk of survivor homicides. Join us to learn about exiting local and national efforts underway to address the intersections of DV and gun violence.

    Sabath Huttle and Thresea Phillips, King County's new DV Firearms Surrender Coordinators, will come to share local efforts to decrease the risk to survivors and increase firearms surrender in King County. They discuss changes in local and national laws that address increased lethality, the regional task force which was convened to improve implementation of state laws, and specific steps that advocates can take to help with the coordination of firearms surrender.

    Cathy Munsen, the Coalition Manager for the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, will share information about the creation of Disarm Domestic Violence, the first comprehensive website about domestic violence protective order enforcements and firearm surrender. The website will be a collaboration between the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, the National Coalition and Dos will allow advocates and gun violence prevention activists to research state-specific laws on domestic violence-related protective order firearm removals.

    Green River College-Kent Campus, 417 Ramsay Way #112, Kent, WA 98032, USA

    The links between domestic violence, substance use, and mental health have been widely established in survivor experience and academic research, and domestic violence and behavioral health service providers are increasingly aware of the importance of working with survivors and each other holistically. This workshop will feature innovative programs around King County that are addressing the critical intersections of behavioral health and domestic violence, including:

    -Housing and advocacy with survivors of domestic violence in substance use recovery
    -Wraparound mental health and advocacy services for survivors and their children
    -Mental health therapists serving domestic violence survivors within community-based domestic violence programs

    Advocates and therapists from these programs will share the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced in developing and providing their services, as well as lessons and skill-building for all providers who wish to work with domestic violence survivors with behavioral health concerns effectively and sensitively.
