On this segment of LTAR :The Second Pandemic- Domestic violence in America


Hosted by Professional Johnson

We are joined by a special guest, Mary Li, Director of the Multnomah Idea Lab-a think tank in Portland, OR.
Nia Gray, our faith Reporter is on Assignment.

Domestic violence is a public health crisis that existed before COVID. If you had a problem before COVID in whatever sphere - domestic violence, health issues, racism -  COVID has elevated it. At least four Black women and girls were murdered per day in the United States in 2020, according to statistics recently released by the FBI , a sharp increase compared with the year before.

The FBI recorded at least 405 additional murders of Black women and girls last year as homicide surged across the country, and experts caution that even that stark number probably represents an undercount.

To families of victims and local activists, the release of the data is just the latest reminder that violence against Black women and girls often goes ignored, and should be made a more urgent public priority.
