October, 2013

As a result of the alarming disproportionality of African American intimate partner homicides both nationally and in the state of New Jersey, the New Jersey Domestic Violence Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board focused its 2010-2011 case review process on African American victims in an effort to understand and identify culturally unique factors that may contribute to the disproportion of intimate partner homicides for this population. The goal of the 2010-2011 case review process was to attempt to identify trends of domestic violence occurrence in this community and provide culturally unique recommendations to reduce the outcomes of intimate partner homicide for African American victims.
