Pritzker unveils domestic violence plan

Thursday, Oct 5, 2017

* Press release…

As Domestic Violence Awareness Month begins, JB Pritzker released a domestic violence plan to help children and families break the cycle of violence across Illinois. State Representative Sara Feigenholtz has worked tirelessly to ensure survivors and their families have the resources they need. Rep. Feigenholtz, a longtime supporter and friend of JB Pritzker, endorses JB’s plan and pledges to stand with him to break the cycle of violence in the lives of these families.

While more than 53,000 Illinoisans receive support from community-based providers each year, Bruce Rauner did long term damage to the tools domestic violence survivors need to build a path toward self-sufficiency. JB’s plan would put Illinois children on a path to success and give parents the tools they need to build better lives. As governor, JB will:

    * Implement evidence-based screening, detection, and prevention models to identify and help children who witness domestic violence.

    * Ensure that schools and community-based providers help children who witness domestic violence rebuild their lives by utilizing trauma-informed treatment models.

    * Ensure families have access to the tools they need to rebuild their lives by stabilizing state investment in domestic violence shelters and services that have been hurt by Governor Rauner’s budget crisis.

    * Work with community-based programs to help them build and maintain a trained workforce able to fully address the needs of domestic violence survivors.

“Trauma-informed intervention services for survivors of domestic violence can change lives,” said JB Pritzker. “These services help survivors and children break cycles of violence to pursue safe and healthy futures. As governor, agencies and the survivors and families they serve will have a real advocate in Springfield.”

“JB’s plan to break the cycle of violence prioritizes screening, detection and healing for children and families experiencing domestic violence,” said State Representative Sara Feigenholtz. “I am proud to stand with JB, and I know that as governor he will be a partner in efforts to empower survivors and do whatever it takes to help them rebuild their lives.”

The full plan is here.

I’m told by the campaign that the plan won’t cost additional money. The idea on the spending side of the equation is to stabilize the system by reliably funding it for a change.

    Perhaps the lede should read anti-domestic violence plan😀


  2. - blue dog dem - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 11:14 am:

    There’s that phrase again….evidence based.


  3. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 11:16 am:

    Actually paying providers for their contracted services would be a good first step.

    In recent years, it got acceptable among faux “conservatives” to sign contracts with no intent to pay.


  4. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 11:20 am:

    It is nice to see policy plans out of the campaign.

    ===The idea on the spending side of the equation is to stabilize the system by reliably funding it for a change.===

    In a normal world, this would be a throwaway line, stock funding answer or rationale, until…

    “…for a change.”

    That’s a daily double, a plan ,and a ding on the side.


  6. - Swift - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 11:29 am:

    == Implement evidence-based screening, detection, and prevention models to identify and help children who witness domestic violence==

    So the plan is to interview all kids to have them narc on their parents and then treat them differently in school? What could go wrong here.


  7. - Where's the truth? - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 1:01 pm:

    “hurt by Governor Rauner’s budget crisis” is a disgraceful misrepresentation. When the political establishment of a state chooses to be dishonest with its taxpayers for decades by spending high and taxing at a level that doesn’t support its expenditures- eventually there is a day of reckoning. The state fiscal mess is not all on Rauner.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 1:05 pm:

    ===taxpayers===

    Who’s not a taxpayer.

    Be specific.

    We’re all taxpayers.

    Rauner, personally, as governor, hurt social services and did so at such great lengths Diana Rauner personally thanked JB Pritzker and the Pritzkers’ trusts for the $5 million they donated to The Ounce while Bruce hurt social services like… The Ounce.


  9. - Where's the truth? - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 2:30 pm:

    Right. All I’m saying is there are more programs that our politicians have created than there is funding to support. If every program is important to have, then be honest with the people who pay the taxes and set the tax rate accordingly. But don’t carry on for decades racking up billions in debt and act like it’s the current administration’s fault that there’s no money to pay providers. That is dishonest. Place blame where it belongs.


  10. - Amalia - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 3:53 pm:

    did Sarah write the plan?


  11. - Last Bull Moose - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 9:15 pm:

    The problem with these cost neutral programs is timing. Even if they work, the added expenses of this budget year cannot be paid by the projected savings in future budgets.

    You have to prime the pump have faith and believe, but it takes water to prime the pump.

    The longer I worked at DCFS, the less I believed that we knew how to turn damaged children into productive adults. I am sure we helped some but the success rate was low.

    I am particularly talking about the children taken from their parents and taken into care.


  12. - Reform - Thursday, Oct 5, 17 @ 10:56 pm:

    Pritzker is so light on reforms and addressing our financial issues.
