Initiative Update

An expanding resource base!

Posted June 13, 2020 from India

Saahas now has a separate group of helplines that specifically speak to survivors of gender-based violence from race, caste, religious, and ethnic minority backgrounds. Intersectionality teaches us about the added trauma of systemic oppression - and survivors have often not been able to find support in organizations that hold conscious and unconsicious caste, race, religious, and ethnic biases. This is an evolving list, so if you have any support helplines / organizations you can add to the list, please feel free to send them over.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

Hello Dear Kirthi,

How are you and your family, Love? I can't think of any organizations like that, off the top of my head, but I will let you know if I come across any. Good luck with your list.

I hope you're doing well and that you have a good weekend.

Thanks for sharing this update with us Kirthi. This post is worth broadcasting.
