Domestic violence can impact anyone at any time regardless of age, race, gender, culture, or socio-economic status. For communities of color and marginalized, vulnerable, and/or underserved populations, culturally specific programs are imperative to preventing and ending gender violence. These programs are focused on addressing and supporting unique cultural backgrounds, traditions, and values of the victims, families, and communities.
