Who is Affected?

 

Domestic violence is an intersectional issue.

 
While anyone could be a victim or survivor of domestic violence, not everyone has the same resources to leave the abusive relationship. Many communities face additional barriers of discrimination that make it even more difficult to ask for help, find help, and/or leave the relationship.
Who is Affected?
Many people have multiple intersections of oppression, such as a person facing intimate partner abuse who is a part of the LGBTQ+ community, an immigrant, a person of color, and/or has a disability.
 
We encourage you to read below to learn more about how people in various communities are uniquely affected by intimate partner abuse.
