A Road Map for Ending Domestic Violence in California: A Life Course Approach to Prevention


The trauma from sexual and domestic abuse harms millions of women, men, children and non binary folks every year in California with sometimes life-long effects to health and wellness. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that we must double our efforts in preventing and addressing domestic and sexual violence. Throughout this Road Map, FUTURES seeks to center the experience of those who have been marginalized by proposing strategies that address systemic and social inequities that contribute to unequal health outcomes — such as racism, homophobia and transphobia, poverty, immigration status, and sexism.
