SAN ANTONIO (August 24, 2020) – Mayor Ron Nirenberg, County Judge Nelson Wolff, Judge Peter Sakai, and Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger are participating in a discussion to be moderated by Judge Monique Diaz on Monday, August 24 from 12:15 PM to 1 PM. The Facebook Live event will address critical issues that touch the lives of domestic violence victims and survivors. “The CCDV is striving to bring domestic violence to the forefront of policy and community discussions because we understand that it sadly affects an unacceptable number of individuals and families in Bexar County,” said Judge Diaz.
 
The CCDV was created by Judge Sakai in conjunction with the City on July 31, 2019 to implement a public health strategy for addressing and preventing domestic violence as delineated in the City of San Antonio Domestic Violence Comprehensive Plan. In the inaugural year of the five-year plan, the CCDV has been working on achieving specific objectives, including but not limited to, establishing a Crisis Response Team, developing a framework for collecting data across agencies, launching an all-inclusive website for resources, and organizing a domestic violence awareness symposium. According to Dr. Bridger, “The City is committed to eradicating domestic violence in our community. In fact, with the assistance of City Council, we are expanding the Violence Prevention Program, so we can better address the root causes of intimate partner and family violence.”
