Californians Demonstrate High Levels of Domestic Violence Awareness

California Watch reports that domestic violence awareness in California might be higher than ever. A survey of 900 adults conducted by Tulchin Research (with funds provided by Blue Shield Foundation) demonstrated that 70% of Californians think that domestic violence is something that can happen to anyone (“people like me” or “people I know well”). 66% said they have family members of friends who have been abused. More than 80% think that it is necessary to provide information about domestic and dating abuse to middle and high school students. The survey results are available on the Blue Shield Foundation website.
