In this issue:

  • New Resource: Serving Male-Identified Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence: The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence released guidance earlier this month to support "advocates seeking to build capacity to recognize and respond to survivors across the gender spectrum, while honoring the gender analysis that helps us understand the root causes of violence and oppression." Historically, domestic violence programs were born from the women's liberation movement to address the needs of female survivors, who to this day, continue to disproportionately be impacted by intimate partner violence. However, it's important to remember that boys and men are also victims.
