Culture, Language, and Access: Key Considerations for Serving Deaf Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence
This policy and practice brief summarizes the findings from Vera Institute of Justice's work with the Deaf community and offers practical suggestions for increasing Deaf survivors’ access to victim services and other supports, including those offered by the criminal justice and medical systems. This information will provide a framework for meeting the needs of Deaf survivors that is grounded in the cultural and linguistic needs of this community. It will also ground policymakers, practitioners, and first responders in the victim services field in the realities of this often-overlooked community. It is our hope that they and others will join us in becoming hearing allies to the Deaf community and Deaf survivors of domestic and sexual violence across the country.
