People surviving violence in their daily lives may experience increased isolation and danger from social distancing. Survivors often have specific needs for safety, health and confidentiality.
People already more vulnerable to economic and health insecurity are now facing additional challenges.
This list of COVID-19 resources for domestic violence and sexual assault victims offers suggestions and connections to help survivors get through this time.
Immigrant Defense Project has a community-facing resource in English and Spanish to give folks updates on ICE enforcement right now, what's happening with the immigration agencies, and what to do if a loved one is detained and there are medical concerns. The resource can be found here in English and in Spanish.
