Domestic Violence is a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviors including physical, sexual, and psychological attacks as well as economic coercion that adults or adolescents use against their intimate partner. The Commission seeks to alleviate the impact of domestic abuse on Arkansans by becoming involved in improving public policy, distribution of state funds to shelter programs, providing training on domestic violence issues and conducting other community projects.
For information about domestic violence or any of the other commission projects, please contact Sara Rudolph-Pollard, project coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
