Each year, millions of women immigrate to the United States and Canada who are victims of domestic violence in their former countries of residence, as well as their new homes in North America.

Facing Diversity helps to raise awareness of the issues and barriers faced by women from diverse cultures as they deal with the domestic violence in their lives. It illustrates specific, culturally-sensitive practices for police, prosecutors, and victim advocates in order to support and assist women to end the violence. Examples from Hispanic, East Asian and South Asian cultures are shown as women learn to obtain relief from violence, deal with the reality of their situation and navigate the justice and court systems.

The video serves as an ideal training tool for staff and volunteers who work with a diverse population of victims of partner violence, and may also function as a beneficial community educational supplement about domestic abuse.

Production Includes: 40 minute video and Teacher's Guide
