Press Kit for Media Professionals: Reporting on Domestic Violence

General Material
Published Date
January, 2015

This kit is for people in the media reporting on domestic violence. The kit provides education about what domestic violence is and how reporters can cover it in a way that is effective, accurate, and respectful to victims. It reminds media professionals to focus on the behavior of the abuser, not the victim. Some information is South Carolina-specific but most will be helpful to people in other states.
