THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE: WHERE’S IT LOCATED, WHEN DID IT START, AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
For years, there’s been a telephone number in Texas that anyone who needs information about domestic violence can call. It’s become the one resource that clinics, shelters, women’s organizations and advocates can post in notices, put on rest room doors, and print on the back of brochures. It has consistently been the go-to number that is the first stop for victims throughout the nation to use when they are seeking help or information about DV.
This Saturday we are fortunate to have three people who know the Domestic Violence hotline number and organization intimately, and can tell us who calls, what happens when they do, and how this simple phone number has been a godsend for decades.
Cameka Crawford is the Chief Communications officer at the National Domestic Violence Hotline and its youth-focused program, loveisrespect. Brian Pinero, Chief Programs Officer at the NDVH, and former guest on the show will join us as will Whitney Laas, who oversees the daily operations of The Hotline and loveisrespect's 24/7 crisis chat lines and text messaging service. No one knows more about the history, functioning, and benefits of the national hotline like these three.
Please join us Saturday to learn more about the national hotline and the kinds of calls that come in each day, and the lasting good a simple phone number can do
