Think&Drink - Disconnect: What Do We Do About Domestic Violence?

  • Front Street Taproom 614 Main Ave Fargo United States (map)

Think&Drink is a Humanities happy hour series that combines good conversation and great beer. Join our content experts for a dynamic dialogue set in a great local bar.

Americans have long grappled with the multifaceted problem of domestic violence and its potential solutions. In the past decade, the role of the legal system has increasingly become a source debate.

Advocates for decriminalizing domestic violence have called for a greater emphasis on medical, social, and economic approaches and consequently less reliance on criminal law. Opponents contend such a move would destigmatize abuse and further reduce resources for survivors.

By placing the discussion within the larger historical context, we will explore how the legal system became the primary solution and the visions and struggles in the reform movement today.

Discussion led by Dr. Ashley Baggett
