A GUIDE FOR JOURNALISTS AND OTHER MEDIA PROFESSIONALS

The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) has developed a guide for journalists covering domestic violence. This guide includes:

  • Domestic violence statistics
  • An overview of domestic violence laws
  • Tips for covering domestic violence crimes in the most complete and accurate way possible
  • Resource information that can be incorporated into coverage

The guide is written for journalists, but can be utilized by domestic violence advocates to support their work with local media. We encourage advocates to contact local reporters covering domestic violence crimes and fatalities and share this guide with them.
