COVID-19 has taken its toll on everyone, but for those who live with an abuser, the pandemic is making matters even worse. The combination of stress, isolation, and confinement can cause tempers to flare and the situation is especially dangerous when a victim cannot easily leave the presence of the abuser. At the beginning of the Pandemic, many agencies reduced services or shutdown. Even domestic violence courts were forced to restrict their operations during the pandemic.
Join us on January 27 for a discussion on domestic abuse, the courts and the pandemic with Judge Megan Goldish who has served as a judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County Domestic Violence Division since 2014.
