This workshop will explore the difference between bias and prejudice and how personal and institutional biases impact services to communities of color. Attendees will discuss how VAWA has improved services to communities of color in the past 20 years and what still needs to be done to improve the justice system response and advocacy services for battered women of color. Attendees will identify reasons why survivors of color do not rely on the civil and criminal justice systems and/or may not access mainstream advocacy services and criminal justice assistance.
