Webinar: Supporting Migrant Workers Experiencing Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is prevalent in all communities and COVID-19 has amplified the incidence of such abuses. With quarantine restrictions, precarious employment, and fewer supports available due to the pandemic, domestic abuses have been on the rise. Migrant workers face additional vulnerabilities in accessing supports due to lack of knowledge or availability of service, understanding of the law, language barriers and the cultural differences that may dictate their course of action in such abuses. Addressing the prevalence, impact, and best practices in responding to domestic violence can attribute to better supports for migrant workers.

In this webinar on domestic violence in migrant worker communities, we will examine:

• Key terms and concepts of domestic violence
o Gender based lens
o Forms of domestic violence and risk factors
o Abusive relationship cycles
• Impacts and risk factors of domestic violence on migrant workers
• Strategies for responding to domestic violence for migrant workers
• Offering support services; action plans, resources, and referrals
