community talk-back: black women's experiences with intimate partner abuse

At Safe Harbor, we recognize that domestic abuse, racism, and sexism intersect in the lives of Black women, resulting in high barriers to support and safety. Consequently, Black women are far more likely to die due to domestic abuse. On August 30th, 2020, we held a Community Talk-Back about Black Women's Experience with Intimate Partner Abuse. We hope to continue the conversation about the barriers faced by African American women and how we can address them as a community. If you were not able to participate last week, you can watch the recording of the talk-back at the link below and stay tuned for more opportunities like this. Follow us on social media and visit our website, to stay up-to-date.

Healthcare Professionals - Short Video (10 mins)

Healthcare Professionals - Full Video (20 mins)

These videos for medical professionals hope to achieve several things. First, to help medical professionals understand and identify domestic abuse since nearly 80% of female victims of domestic abuse visit emergency departments for medical treatment, and as many as 72% are not identified as victims. Second, to empower you to respond effectively to the needs of the survivor and be able to offer options that could include contacting Safe Harbor. And third, learn the warning signs of domestic abuse, and be able to talk with your patients safely.
