Responding to Forced Marriage in Colorado (Part 2)

Forced marriage frequently intersects with other forms of violence and abuse, yet individuals facing forced marriage often fall through the cracks of protective systems. This session will provide an overview of the nature and scope of forced marriage in the US, the complex dynamics that drive this form of abuse, and an innovative service model used to address survivors’ intersectional needs through comprehensive direct services and policy advocacy to address systemic causes of increased vulnerability.
