New Federal Rules Affect Battered Homeless
DeKalb, IL – WNIJ's Dan Klefstad interviews Pam Weisman, the Executive Director of Safe Passage. Safe Passage assists victims of domestic violence in DeKalb County.
Weisman says the new federal rule could threaten her clients' lives because a central database makes it easier for batterers to locate their victims. Weisman says Safe Passage may forgo federal funding in order to protect its clients.
