Media Guide & Inquiries

Reporters can make a difference in the lives of victims by lifting the veil of silence that allows domestic violence to go unchecked to the point of murder. We recognize that every minute counts when you´re on deadline. In your coverage of domestic violence issues and incidents, the expertise and resources of CCADV and its statewide network of 18 local domestic violence agencies can help you save time, reduce legwork, ensure accuracy, and get your story out there quickly.

CCADV has developed a Media Guide which can assist you in reporting domestic violence. This guide aims to help reporters, copywriters, headline writers, and editors with coverage of domestic violence.

We will make every effort to assist you in:

  • Obtaining comment from Coalition leaders
  • Finding local domestic violence programs and other local, state, and national experts
  • Explaining the range of free and confidential services available through the local programs
  • Providing general information and up-to-date facts, statistics, and graphics
  • Dispelling common myths about domestic violence
  • Offering background on state and federal domestic violence laws pertaining to protection orders, probable cause arrest, firearms, child custody, stalking, address confidentiality, crime victims' rights, and more
  • Detailing ways the general public can help someone who is a domestic violence victim
  • Identifying resources and hotlines for people seeking help with domestic violence
