OIM | Women in Community and Context (Safety & Services)
2018-07-12    

Join Jacquelyn Boggess from Center For Family Policy and Practice in discussing the context of chronic poverty, economic deprivation, and racial and social inequity for some victims and families. In listening sessions, black advocates, victims, and survivors reported that black women experiencing poverty identified a mismatch in services – between what many low-income victims of color identify as their most pressing needs and the services that are available – which places women at increased risk. Traditional advocacy services and safety planning are crucial and must continue to provide desperately needed services. At the same time, there is urgent need to further increase safety by developing and strengthening culturally relevant interventions and advocacy services.
