Advocating for Families of the Black and African Diaspora Victimized by Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence
Please take our anonymous survey if you identify as African, Black, African American or Black Diaspora and live in Utah. The purpose of this survey is to help us better understand the needs concerning sexual violence and domestic violence in your community.
Barriers to Reporting
Many Black women hesitate to report sexual and domestic violence due to: 1) Historical trauma and present day treatment, assumptions and stereotypes by first responders (law enforcement, medical personnel, the court system, social workers, and advocates). 2) Language barriers, and fear of deportation increases their difficulty in finding help and supportive services.
