Grocery Stores and Retailers Now Equipped with Posters on How Victims of Violence Can Get Help

Posters offer resources for domestic violence and child abuse.

DA O’Malley’s innovative idea has lead to a collaboration with the California Retailer Association and the California Grocers Association. Posters providing information regarding resources for victims of domestic violence and child abuse will be posted in grocery stores and other retail stores that remain open throughout the county.

“During the Shelter-in-Place we have a heightened sense of concern for the safety victims of violence in the home. Victims suffering from interpersonal abuse and child abuse may be unable to call for help or report the crimes,” says DA O’Malley.

We encourage any person who is being victimized or is in fear to call or text 911, or reach out to a agency listed on the resource poster. We also ask neighbors, friends and community members to “hear, see, suspect, and report”. You may be saving a life.
