A dark depiction of one woman's reality. Every minute 24 people become victims of domestic violence. This October, the CalVCP is working to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence.
Recent events have proven that many Americans still consider domestic violence a private issue that shouldn’t concern anyone but the involved parties. Julie Nauman, Executive Officer of the California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP) couldn’t disagree more.
Executive Officer Statement
"Domestic violence is never okay. It's not a personal problem, and it's not just a family issue. This is not a matter better left to be dealt with at home. It is a community issue and one that we must address now."

The very sad fact remains that people are abused because their abuser knows that not only are they likely to get away with it, but that the consequences — both legal and societal — are not large concerns. Let me speak plainly. That last fact is our fault.
