Domestic abuse is a public health and safety concern that continues to impact women, men, and children across all racial, religious, and societal groups. Yet, it manifests differently across these groups. Understanding the role of culture is critical in assisting survivors both inside and outside the courtroom. In this presentation, Honorable Judge Mark Juhas from the Superior Court of Los Angeles (Family Law Division) and Shuray Ghorishi, Senior Attorney from Family Violence Appellate Project, will identify different forms of abuse in the cultural context, the barriers survivors often face when seeking assistance with legal matters, and how to dispel common myths attributed to survivors in a courtroom setting by using statutes and case law.
