Valiant Voices: Serving Immigrant Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence with Community Innovation

Event Date
Tuesday, May 18, 2021, 01:00PM

Abuse is a significant problem for all women, and immigrant women globally are particularly vulnerable. Economic and social factors, including immigration status, are challenges to reporting violence or seeking necessary services. Rosario de la Torre, legal advocate at Casa de Esperanza, and Phumulani shelter founder, Comfort Dondo, are mobilizing to protect Latina and African immigrant women by creating bilingual shelters, and survivor support through both legal action and culturally-specific community engagement, including tea ceremonies and listening sessions. Rosario and Comfort model how to lift up all women experiencing violence by sharing their innovative solutions grounded in community realities.
