Many of the statistics tracking domestic violence are moving in the wrong direction. Willow Domestic Violence Center is taking steps to change that. But the local trends follow a global increase in domestic violence in the last decade.

This hour, we discuss how community organizations and individuals can better support domestic violence survivors.
