Domestic violence is a major problem that plagues all communities, including immigrant communities. Domestic violence cannot be overlooked or ignored. The Arab-American community must take active steps to open the “closed door” and address domestic violence.
This program will discuss key issues and trends in domestic violence, and educate attendees on important services for addressing domestic violence. It will inform attendees on best practices for working with law enforcement to combat domestic violence, as well as best practices for persons in the social work and family health fields.
This program is presented as part of the ADC Arabesque Lecture Series. ADC uses the Arabesque Lecture Series programs and events to educate both Arab-American and non-Arab American communities on important issues we face in society.
