Speranza Human Compassion Project

Research, Critical Conversations & Events... Moving the Science Forward

Violence against women and children is a major public health crisis and a population health issue that has long been overlooked and mishandled, yet our emergency and medical responders are left to deal with the fallout from this lack of attention, night after night.

Here we discuss what the research, our emergency responders, government officials, and experts say about what needs to be done NOW to improve the overall health and wellbeing outcomes for women and children in crisis, AND our first responders.
