Recent research suggests that Deaf women experience higher rates of sexual and domestic violence than their hearing counterparts, but are often shut off from victim services and supports that are ill-equipped to respond to their unique needs. As a result, they are denied access to services that could help them safely flee from abuse, heal from trauma, and seek justice after they have been harmed. This policy brief offers practical suggestions for expanding and enhancing Deaf survivors’ access to victim services and other supports.

In the 19 jurisdictions included in case studies, victims generally received free exams without having to report if they did not want to. However, barriers to even accessing the exam prevent some victims from seeking help.

Spanish-coverEl Centro Nacional de Recursos contra la Violencia Sexual (NSVRC, por sus siglas en inglés) ha publicado Este informe amplio detalla las necesidades de defensoras(es) relacionadas con la violencia sexual en comunidades latinas. Por ejemplo, mientras que el 91.4% de participantes en la encuesta nacional dijo que su organización ha identificado el perfil demográfico de la población a la cual desea servir, sólo el 19.3% pensaba que su clientela pertenecía a dicha población; también las personas participantes se refirieron continuamente a la importancia de crear materiales culturalmente específicos que en realidad reflejen la cultura de las comunidades latinas y/o hispanoparlantes.
