About This Event
Please register and join us for our 26th Minority Health Initiative Annual Luncheon (MHIAL) on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, 11 am-1:30 pm (Doors and exhibits open at 10:15 am) at The Willows, 6279 Westfield Blvd., Indianapolis, IN.
This year’s annual luncheon theme is “The Colors of Domestic Violence.”We will be discussing the disproportionate impact domestic violence, particularly intimate partner violence (IPV), has on marginalized groups, such as racial and ethnic minorities and those that identify as LGBTQ+.
Domestic violence is an all-too-common issue affecting 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men. Unfortunately, these numbers are rising. The Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV), an advisory partner on this event, shared the following data on IPV fatalities in Indiana: “From July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, ICADV recorded 98 intimate partner violence-related fatalities, an increase of 181% over the same time period of 2019-2020.”
Please join us as we work to address IPV as it is a significant public health issue in our communities. Attendees will hear from guest speakers who will provide an overview of all that domestic violence entails, as well as, provide resources for those who have been impacted.
The mission of Indiana Minority Health Coalition (IMHC) is to eliminate health disparities through research, education, advocacy, and working to increase access to health care services in minority communities.
