Friends and Partners:
The Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence (KCSDV) is also making changes in response to the pandemic of COVID-19. We know all of you are also making changes and working to protect your families and communities. Our primary commitment is to the health and safety of survivors of stalking, dating violence, and domestic and sexual violence and their families. That has not and will not change during this pandemic.
Our staff, their families, and the people we work in partnership with include populations who are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. We also believe now is the time to assure we have continuity of services. We believe this is the appropriate response to today’s public health crisis.
