A Push for Safety Plans: Examining Mass Shootings & Domestic Violence

An examination of recent mass shootings and links to domestic violence by One Love Foundation urges individuals at-risk for intimate partner violence to develop safety plans.

Editor's Note: One Love, whose campaign #Thatsnotlove was carried by the National Football League, Comcast and others last year, offers a healthy relationship curriculum of film-based workshops, videos and discussion guides that's been used by public sector organizations like the U.S. Navy and Broward County Schools. The following article explores the connection between 2017 mass shootings and history of intimate partner violence. EfficientGov has also found that, based on data, domestic disputes were a top cause in the 37 Largest Mass Shootings in the U.S. in 2017. The organization recommends individuals that consider themselves to be in abusive relationships, particularly in cases where firearms are present, develop safety plans. A safety plan, according to the government-funded National Domestic Violence Hotline, is a personalized plan that focuses on remaining safe while in a relationship, planning to leave or after leaving.
