Addressing Access to Alcohol and Alcohol Environments for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention
While alcohol alone may not be a driver of violence, research shows that an increased concentration of alcohol establishments in communities heightens risk for multiple forms of violence, including sexual and domestic violence. This web conference will reference the evidence demonstrating connections between alcohol outlet density and violence such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s technical packages. Guests will share actions they are taking to map liquor licenses and rates of violence, address norms that often accompany alcohol establishments, and implement related policies and practices.
