A Shameful Relentless American Epidemic

Greenwich Time Editorial 7.February.2019: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that nearly half of female homicide victims in the nation are killed by men who are, or were, intimate partners. YWCA Greenwich President and CEO Mary Lee Kiernan, who guides the agency’s domestic violence program, accurately characterized the consistency of such statistics as “deeply disturbing.”

The YWCA offers a hotline at 203-622-0003, while the Stamford-based Domestic Violence Crisis Center uses the statewide crisis line at 888-774-2900.
Murders may be rare in Greenwich, but domestic violence remains the No. 1 reported crime in Greenwich.
