House Votes to Expand Education About Domestic Violence – Bill to be signed by Gov. Brown

The Oregon House of Representatives today voted unanimously to pass Senate Bill 790, which will increase the number of children in grades 7 through 12 who receive important, age-appropriate education about domestic violence.

The bill requires the Department of Justice to encourage and support services and education curricula about domestic violence, and requires school district boards to adopt policies that incorporate age-appropriate domestic violence education for 7th through 12th graders as well as school employees.

SB 790 also directs the Department of Education to provide school districts with posters in both English and Spanish containing information about domestic violence and a toll-free number that can be called.

“Domestic violence affects far too many individuals in our state and many of them are youth who may feel they have nowhere to turn if they are personally affected by domestic violence,” says Rep. Carla Piluso (D-Gresham), who carried the bill. “Senate Bill 790 not only offers intervention and response, but will also prevent future violence by educating our young people about this critical issue.”

SB 790 passed the Senate in April, and will now go to the Governor for her signature.
