Racial Equity & Social Justice Conversations: Domestic Violence

Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless people and their families across the United States. People of all ages, income levels, racial and ethnic communities, sexual orientations and religious affiliations experience violence in the form of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, trafficking and stalking.

Victims of violence face many barriers to accessing resources and safety. Women of color and other marginalized populations experience disproportionate experiences of violence and increased barriers in seeking help. Many of these barriers stem from long-standing inequity in public policies and social safety nets.

Our next virtual conversation will focus on domestic violence, discussing how to provide comprehensive and inclusive resources and support to meet the needs of all victims of violence, particularly those who face increased barriers to safety.

This conversation is a part of Week Without Violence, a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. At YWCA St. Paul, we know that all violence is not acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether.
