Amanda Kippert on Great.com Talks | DomesticShelters.org, Helping Domestic Violence Victims Seek Help
Domestic violence statistics sore to new heights during the pandemic. With people being locked inside, stress became a real issue in our society. With the stress from the pandemic also came more abuse by abusing partners. Since everyone had to stay at home, women and men became trapped with abusive partners. And the victim statistics aren't great, as one in three women and one in five men are victims of domestic abuse. Domesticshelters.org works to make more people aware of the services available for those experiencing domestic violence and make it faster and easier for the victims and their friends and family to get the help they need. Amanda Kippert joined the DomesticShelters.org team in 2014. As an award-winning journalist with more than 20 years experience as well as a trained domestic violence advocate, she has spent the last 10 years reporting exclusively on issues surrounding intimate partner violence and abuse. Her work has been featured in several national publications including A&E and HuffPost. Her year-long investigation into domestic violence in the military, "A Forgotten Crisis," was nominated for a New York Deadline Club award. Amanda also cohosts the podcast Toxic.Show More Show Less
