Utah Domestic Violence Coalition Urges All Utahns to Resolve for a Violence-Free 2022

The last 365 days in Utah have reminded us, yet again, that domestic and intimate partner violence is a statewide, non-discriminatory problem with consequences that extend far beyond the immediate parties involved. Thus, Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is urging all Utahns to resolve for a violence-free 2022.  

“We must do more, as individuals and as a state, to reduce and prevent violence in our homes, community gathering spots, workplaces, and on the streets,” said Jen Campbell, executive director of Utah Domestic Violence Coalition. “Each new year brings new opportunities and we are hopeful all Utahns will support us in our renewed resolution to end domestic and intimate partner violence in Utah.” 

Below are a few steps individuals and state/policy makers can take to increase our chances for a violence-free 2022: 

INDIVIDUALS

  • Listen and believe
  • Know and share resources
  • Model and promote healthy relationships 
  • Advocate for domestic violence programs in the workplace 
  • Increase awareness through honest and respectful conversations with others of all ages, backgrounds, etc. 

STATE/POLICY MAKERS

  • Funding and policy to teach safe and healthy relationship skills 
  • Engage healthy influential adults and peers in policy discussions and decisions
  • Early intervention funding and programs that reduce adverse childhood experiences and disrupt developmental pathways toward partner violence
  • Create and promote protective environments across the age spectrum and throughout the community
  • Strengthen financial and economic support for families
  • Support survivors to increase safety and lessen harm

 

Resolving to assess, address, and suppress violence at a local level is critical to positive outcomes, and it takes all of us, working together, to make that change. By resolving to take these actions, we are better able to collectively prevent negative traits and behaviors while simultaneously promoting healthy relationships, providing victim-centered services and policies, and connecting those both directly and indirectly impacted by violence with treatment and support.
