While the impact of social distancing and self-quarantine is stressful for everyone, it can be life threatening for domestic violence victims. Since COVID-19 hit communities in early 2020, domestic violence incidents have risen so much that advocates have called in the shadow pandemic. Join Dr. Joni Johnston as she interviews attorney Casey Gwinn, a prosecuting attorney and president of Alliance for HOPE International, and explores how victims can stay safe, how law enforcement can protect themselves when responding to domestic violence calls, and how communities are working together to break the cycle of what is often a multi-generational problem.
Casey Gwinn, Esq. serves as the President of Alliance for HOPE International. Casey has been recognized by The American Lawyer magazine as one of the top 45 public lawyers in America. He is an honors graduate of Stanford University and UCLA School of Law.
