Resources for Domestic Partner Abuse

The rate of Domestic Abuse by an intimate partner is 3x higher among immigrants than non-immigrant women. As an immigrant woman, this is disheartening. That is why we created a resource list to connect the victims of Domestic abuse with organizations that are expert in the field. 

 

Please note that our expertise is limited in this area. Our role is mainly to educate and connect. 

If you or your organization is involved in such efforts, we would love to share your information with our community.  For that, please feel free to connect with me.

Two episodes on Empowering ConversationZ podcast focused on victims of Domestic abuse.

&

Bahareh as a child by her father. Listen to their powerful stories.
