What's Love Got to Do With It? Confronting Domestic Violence, Creating Justice

February 14, 2013 - February 10, 2013
Manoa Campus, William S. Richardson School of Law 2515 Dole Street, Honolulu Classroom 1 Add to Calendar

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States. Over the last decade, nearly twice as many women in the U.S. were killed by their partners than U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. If the survivors of domestic violence each year in the U.S. were put into Aloha Stadium, they would fill its seats 36 times over. In Hawaii, 169 domestic violence victims are served every twenty-four hours and immigrant women are dying at the hands of their partners at disproportionate rates.

Despite these horrifying statistics, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was allowed to expire for the first time since its passage in 1994 because of Republican opposition to the notion that all women - immigrant, Native, LGBTQ - deserve to be included in the bill. As a result, 200,000 women stand to lose essential services and protections and the most vulnerable victims-- transnational, Native, and LGBTQ---remain doubly chained to abusive partners with the threat of re-victimization by the “justice” system.

Join us in confronting this human rights crisis and affirming that all people, regardless of citizenship, class, race, and gender-orientation, deserve a life free from violence.
