According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), African American women experience domestic violence at disproportionately high rates compared to women of other racial and ethnic groups. Here are some relevant statistics:


Prevalence: African American women experience domestic violence at a rate of 35% higher than white women and 2.5 times the rate of women of other races. (Source: NCADV)


Lethality: Domestic violence-related homicides are also higher among African American women. They are more than twice as likely to be killed by a spouse or intimate partner than white women. (Source: Institute for Women's Policy Research)


Barriers to Seeking Help: African American women face unique barriers to seeking help and accessing support services, including cultural stigma, fear of discrimination, and mistrust of law enforcement and the legal system.


Intersectionality: Domestic violence intersects with other forms of oppression experienced by African American women, such as racism, poverty, and lack of access to resources. These intersecting factors can exacerbate the risk and impact of domestic violence.


Impact on Children: Domestic violence in African American families can have profound effects on children's well-being and development. Children who witness domestic violence are more likely to experience a range of negative outcomes, including behavioral problems, academic difficulties, and long-term psychological trauma.


Underreporting: Like all survivors of domestic violence, African American women may underreport abuse due to fear, shame, economic dependence, or cultural factors. This can result in an underestimation of the true prevalence and severity of the problem.


These statistics underscore the urgent need for culturally competent and intersectional approaches to addressing domestic violence within the African American community. Our Programs and services tailor to the specific needs and experiences of ALL women who have experienced domestic violence, but specifically African American survivors and can help break the cycle of violence and promote healing and empowerment.​
