Every day in the U.S., more than three women are murdered by their intimate partners. Each year, over three million children witness violence in their home. More than one in three women have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
The stories behind these disturbing numbers will be the focus of the 2014 Conference on Crimes Against Women (CCAW), which will be held March 31–April 2 in Dallas, Texas. The event is presented by Genesis Women’s Shelter and the Dallas Police Department, and will provide relevant and timely training to those who respond to, investigate and prosecute crimes against women.
The annual CCAW began in 2006.
