The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV) is launching a community attitudes survey this month and are inviting residents in the state to take part.
The Coalition writes, “For decades, the RICADV has worked to shape the media landscape to empower domestic violence survivors and to counter social acceptance of domestic violence in order to prevent it. This survey is an opportunity for RICADV to learn about current community attitudes toward domestic violence across the state of Rhode Island.”
The survey, which RICADV says will take about 15-20 minutes to complete, will be anonymous and no link will be made between individuals’ names and responses. Some of the questions relate to awareness of campaigns against domestic violence and others cover attitudes to relationships & domestic violence.
The survey is being conducted in association with McClanahan Associates, a professional research and evaluation firm and all those who complete the online survey will be entered into a weekly raffle for the chance to receive a $50 Amazon gift card. There will be three randomly selected winners each week, for a total of 12 winners. The survey can be accessed on RICADV’s website.
During August RI Future will be publishing a series of articles relating to domestic violence issues. Later this week we will feature an interview with House Representative Teresa Tanzi in relation to her bill on domestic violence & access to guns and next week it will be the turn of Deborah Debare, Executive Director of RICADV.
Organizations throughout Rhode Island, including the RICADV’s network of member agencies, provide comprehensive emergency and support services to victims of domestic violence and their children.
