California Black Women's Health Project is compelled to carefully explore the potential impact of the elimination of Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence and encourage Black women and girls to make self-love and self-care a priority by taking a stand against violence in our own lives and in our community.
Our DV/IPV work intersects with several of the programmatic thrusts including our:
- Mental Health Initiative
- Advocate Training Program
- Reproductive Justice Initiative
We support and promote the development and sharing of promising, culturally-competent practices for high need, underserved populations to address domestic violence in CA. Notably, our ATP curriculum incorporates a domestic violence component to train and prepare advocates to conduct culturally-competent DV related outreach, prevention and advocacy services.
