Sure I can still file for a restraining order. I can even print off the papers and fill it out before hand. I can call DV advocates to provide support in filing it. But one thing Kate Brown did not consider is that I cant call an advocate when I'm in isolation and my partner is there right next to me. I also cant randomly leave to be present at the courthouse when my abuser would be suspicious of why I'm leaving the house under a stay at home order.
Look at the numbers of cases in our state and the numbers of cases that werent positive. The numbers of death. Look at the rates of death in the population. Kate needs to lift this order not just for the economy, but for the safety of victims.
