Title: Recognizing and Escaping Domestic Violence During the Pandemic // Artist: Gabrielle Redding // Date: June, 2020

Unique factors of the COVID-19 pandemic (for example: stress, isolation, financial insecurity, and increased buying of alcohol) have created an environment which has amplified stressors and risks, and is conducive to higher rates of domestic violence. This poster seeks to both confirm and identify abusive actions and then outline steps to take to escape those hostile situations, despite limitations of the pandemic. A graphic/comic-book style is intended to simplify the message and remove comprehension barriers, making it more accessible.
