Domestic Violence

On the next INSIGHTS, host Dan Boylan and panelists will explore domestic violence in our islands. Though October is Domestic Violence Awareness month in Hawaii, local organizations advocate for victims year-round and bring to light an issue that still carries stigma. Progress culminated when the Hawaii Legislature passed Act 206 last session. The new law prevents employers from discriminating against domestic violence victims.

Scheduled guests include: William Hoshijo, Executive Director of the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission; Nanci Kreidman, CEO of the Domestic Violence Action Center; and David Louie, Hawaii's Attorney General.

This conversation was recorded on October 20, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
