6    (b) According to the Centers for Disease Control and
7Prevention of the United States Department of Health and Human
8Services, domestic violence accounts for 15% of all violent
9crime in the United States, and in this State, 42% of women and
1026% of men have been harmed by an intimate partner in their
12    (c) According to the U.S. Department of Justice,
13nationwide approximately 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 7 men
14experience severe physical violence resulting from domestic
15violence by an intimate partner at some point in their
17    (d) The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority
18found that while the actual number of domestic violence
19incidents are underreported, in this State over 100,000
20domestic violence offenses were reported to law enforcement
21each year between 2005 and 2017. Between 400,000 and nearly
22600,000 orders of protection were filed each year between 2005
23and 2017.
24    (e) From 2001 to 2018, State domestic violence agencies

2657,684 clients per year, according to the Illinois Criminal



HB3161- 5 -LRB102 16114 LNS 21489 b

1Justice Information Authority.
2    (f) Domestic violence related homicides account for nearly
31 in 5 murders in the United States. According to the National
4Coalition Against Domestic Violence, female homicide victims
5are substantially more likely than male homicide victims to
6have been killed by an intimate partner. One in 3 female murder
7victims are killed by intimate partners. About 4% of male
8homicide victims were killed by an intimate partner.
9Nationwide, 72% of all homicide-suicides involved an intimate
10partner of which 94% of the murdered victims are women.
11    (g) The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority
12found that 15% of all homicides in this State are connected to
13domestic violence, such that at least 130 domestic violence
14related homicides occurred in this State during 2019. The
15Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence found that
16domestic violence fatalities occurred across at least 26
17counties and included at least 7 children between July 2019
18and June 2020.

1services, and other systems in the community. A coordinated
2and consistent approach among community and system points of
3intervention are important to fostering the safety, stability,
4well-being and healing of survivors, and facilitating
5meaningful engagement with and sustainable accountability for
7    (k) Domestic violence transcends boundaries of race,
8religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity,
9disability, culture, socioeconomic status, and geography.
10    (l) Domestic violence related fatalities and
11near-fatalities are experienced and responded to differently
12in historically marginalized communities. The communities and
13systems that victims, survivors, and offenders engage with in
14historically marginalized communities are typically those with
15power imbalances often rooted in systemic racism and
16oppression. Women of color, in particular, face additional
17barriers and gaps in accessing systemic and community
18responses aimed at reducing domestic violence related
19fatalities and near-fatalities.
20    (m) Over 200 domestic violence fatality review teams exist
21across the United States. Those teams are engaged in systems
22reform in order to improve the response to domestic violence
23and reduce and prevent domestic violence related fatalities
24and near-fatalities.
25    (n) Domestic violence related fatalities and
26near-fatalities can be prevented, and the use of regional



HB3161- 7 -LRB102 16114 LNS 21489 b
