The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (GCADV) and the Georgia Commission on Family Violence (GCFV) released their 15th annual Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Report (Report). Together, these statewide agencies coordinate the Fatality Review Project (Project) and work with local fatality review teams to conduct in-depth reviews. The Project is a statewide initiative that closely examines domestic violence-related fatalities. Since 2004, we have worked with 25 communities statewide to conduct in-depth fatality reviews. The Project aims to learn ways to more fully address the problem of domestic violence and to seek solutions to reduce the number of domestic violence-related deaths and injuries in our state.

The Georgia Commission on Family Violence provides support, resources, and referrals to survivors of domestic violence murder-suicide in Georgia. In addition, we provide training, technical assistance, and resources to communities and constituents for the purpose of strategically implementing innovative systematic changes based on the findings and recommendations of the project.
GCFV provides a brochure titled, Support for Survivors of Domestic Violence Murder-Suicide.
