2013 Femicide Report
In 2013, at least 24 women and 7 men were murdered in Minnesota by their current or former spouse or partner, and 6 friends or family members were murdered in domestic violence related situations. 57% of those murder victims lived in Tubman’s primary service area of
Washington, Ramsey, and Hennepin Counties.
The 25th release of the Femicide Report memorializes the 37 Minnesotans known to be killed due to domestic violence in 2013. Today, and every day, we raise the flag in their memory.

Facebook and Safety Concerns for Survivors
Facebook is becoming more popular every day. It can be a wonderful way to connect with our friends and family. However, many people who are abusive use Facebook (and other social networking sites) to harass and stalk their victims.
The National Network to End Domestic Violence, in partnership with Facebook, created a unique and helpful guide for survivors of abuse so that you can still use Facebook but maintain safety and control over your information.
