Domestic violence prevention leaders seek community input

The Bellingham-Whatcom County Commission Against Domestic Violence (DV Commission) is conducting a survey to gather information from community members throughout Whatcom County.     

Please complete the survey below; it will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes.  The survey will close at the end of the business day on July 6, 2011.  

Commission Director Susan Mark said the survey is intended to gather information about area residents' experiences with domestic violence and knowledge of the commission, as well as to get feedback on the effectiveness and importance of intervention and prevention strategies.

The commission was created in 1998, by a joint resolution between the City of Bellingham and Whatcom County, to provide leadership in the community's efforts to reduce and prevent domestic violence and to work closely with other community agencies that respond to domestic violence.

Marks said the commission's mission includes creating community responses to domestic violence that ensure safe, empowering alternatives for victims, while holding perpetrators accountable for their actions.
