Rep. Annie Kuster: We must not forget those experiencing sexual and domestic violence during this pandemic
April 12, 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has uprooted our lives in ways few could have imagined even just a few weeks ago. We are living through a time of worry and uncertainty – we all fear for the health and well-being of our family, friends and ourselves.
Our health care system and our economy are being stressed to their core. Everyone who is able to stay home and practice physical distancing should do so for the sake of helping to limit the spread of this devastating virus. For some, however, taking precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus means staying at home to face a dangerous situation of sheer terror around the clock, sometimes with life-and-death consequences.
It is imperative that we remember those who are experiencing domestic or sexual violence during this national health crisis.
