The Institute on Domestic Violence in the African American Community (IDVAAC) is hosting a weekly Blog Talk radio show called IDVAACRadio.com. IDVAACRadio.com is a vehicle to discuss critical issues associated with domestic violence in the African American and African diaspora communities. It is a primary prevention and public education tool to inform African Americans across the United States about the problem, research and solution to understand issues related to domestic violence and approaches to reduce domestic violence. In the radio shows we will explore either traditional or innovative but also thoughtfully discussed experiences and perspectives of domestic violence among African Americans. Our shows will be hosted by three collaborators: 1) The Institute on Domestic Violence in the African American Community (IDVAAC) that is a national technical assistance and resource center on domestic violence among African Americans); the African American Domestic Peace Project (AADPP is a project developed by IDVAAC located in 15 cities across the United States; currently, 8 sites will host shows) and finally the Women of Color Network (WOCN: a national domestic violence and sexual assault technical assistance organization). IDVAACRadio.com is funded by a grant from the Administration for Children and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau, US Department of Health and Human Services. The words and content of these programs are the responsibilities of the host and do not necessarily represent the official views of the U.S. Department of Human Services.
