Domestic abuse and violence are often shrouded in silence. Families may hide it, and those outside the home are reluctant to interfere. Domestic violence and human trafficking occur in all cultures, but the causes, forms of abuse, and responses to it may vary across cultures. For example, some cultures may have specific cultural norms and expectations that can lead to violence and exploitation, while other cultures may have different ways of responding to these issues. It is important to recognize and respect these differences in order to properly address and prevent domestic violence and human trafficking. This may include providing culturally competent services and resources to survivors, and educating communities about the signs of abuse and exploitation. Ultimately, everyone deserves to live free from violence and exploitation, regardless of their culture.
At JLU, we believe that "prevention is better than cure." Teaching young children, teenagers, men and women how to recognize, prevent, and exit abusive relationships are paramount to their safety and well-being.
