According to the NYC Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender based violence, domestic violence is a pattern of behavior in which one partner gains (or tries to gain) and maintains power and control over another intimate partner. One in three women in the U.S. experience some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.
Oftentimes, survivors of domestic violence in the community are marginalized by intersecting challenges such as poverty, immigration status, lack of safe housing, and others. We work to seek solutions together and assist Muslim women and girls to empower themselves so they can become their own best advocates. Our team is culturally and religiously sensitive and speaks the following languages: Bangla, Dari, English, Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu.
