San Francisco DA launches program for immigrant victims of domestic violence

October 08, 2011 (1 min read)

"San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced Wednesday his office’s launch of a program that seeks to help victims of domestic violence within immigrant communities.  “We want to demystify the issue of domestic violence,” Gascón said during a press conference in his office, touching on concerns that many domestic violence victims in these communities don’t seek help from law enforcement officials. “We want to provide services that are linguistically and culturally competent. We don’t want these cases to go unreported.”"
