On behalf of the Leadership Council for Domestic Violence and Health Care (DVHC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Office of Women’s Health and Domestic Violence Council, we would like to thank our partners and presenters for the second annual symposium, Beyond Silos: Domestic Violence and Health Care Partnerships that took place virtually on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. This year, more than 350 participants attended the symposium featuring health care and advocacy leaders who are pioneering advancements in cross-sector collaboration between the health and DV sectors to promote prevention and early identification of DV; improving the safety net for survivors and their health needs; and promoting systems change across Los Angeles (and the state of California) in a way that better addresses DV as a public health issue. We received tons of positive feedback on the quality of the conference, as well as how inspired folks felt walking away with actionable strategies, a new network of support, and an expanded awareness on the DV and health connection. As we navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, this work has become exceedingly more crucial. The pandemic exacerbated violence and abuse across households, locally and nationally, and hindered survivors’ ability to reach out for support. Survivors, especially those that have been marginalized, have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 while also facing pre-pandemic structural inequities. They are met with unprecedented challenges and are in dire need of support—including access to medical and mental health care and other essential services. Now more than ever, we aim to move the needle on work at the intersection of DV and health care, improving access to care and support services for all survivors. DVHC (link in bio) includes Jenesse Center, Inc., YWCA of San Gabriel Valley, Community Legal Aid SoCal, East Los Angeles Women’s Center. Continue to follow us as we spotlight our partners and share videos from the symposium. ... See MoreSee Less

Not only is Anika Noni Rose brilliant in her portrayal of Regina in the important new @netflix series #maidnetflix that tackles domestic violence, she also has a 💜 of gold.She is donating to Jenesse a portion of her proceeds from her beautiful new song #SoMuchMore that uplifts mothers like MAID’s lead charter Alex. Link in bio.We are beyond grateful! 🙏🏾Posted @withregram • @anikaaroundtheworld **NEW MUSIC** ❤️🎶🎶❤️ *IT’S HERE**🎶🎶❤️ • 🎵LINK IN BIO🎵After reading one of the MAID scripts, I immediately started writing lyrics for So Much More in the form of a poem. I called my genius friends Phil Lawrence (Smeezingtons/Bruno Mars) and Davy Nathan/@DavyNathan (Patti LaBelle), who wrote for Jingle Jangle, and they helped me turn it into what you’re hearing now.This song is for my great aunt who paid for all of her sisters to go to college through domestic work. This song is for every mother (through birth or otherwise) struggling to raise children on not much more than hope, love, and hard work. For every domestic who spends her day making someone else’s life more comfortable. And for every woman who wakes up fearful, thinking she can’t take it anymore, that she has to get out…you can do it. You are worth it. So Much More is available on all major music streaming platforms.*a portion of my share of the proceeds from this recording will be donated to The Jenesse Center (@JenesseCenter), a non-profit domestic violence prevention and intervention organization. If you are in a dangerous domestic situation and in need of assistance PLEASE call HOTLINE: 800-479-7328 You are not alone.* #SoMuchMore #Maid #Motherhood #SingleMothers #NewMusic #AnikaNoniRose #MaidNetflix #JeneseeCenter #DomesticAbuse #DomesticViolence #PhilipLawrence #DavyNathan #acousticguitar ...
