Deborah Brunner is the founder of Heroic Women Warriors & #1 Best Selling Author of “You Deserve This Not That”

During the coronavirus pandemic, staying home, avoiding public spaces, and working remotely are all important steps required to reduce the spread of the virus. But for many people who live with someone who is abusive, this may not be the safest option. In fact, stay-at-home orders and shelter-in-place options have become life-threatening for many people; women and children in particular. Their physical and mental health is being compromised every day in the very place where they should feel safest—their homes.
Abusers are more likely to murder their partners during times of crisis. Consequently, the coronavirus is exacerbating an already volatile situation.

Deborah Brunner will talk about how people can avoid violence at home not just during a crisis or pandemic but everyday.

Susan was a reporter and later a high-powered executive, and a mom; and at home, a

physical injury and emotional scars that will last a lifetime.
