Domestic Violence

Do you know what Domestic Violence is?

  • Every 9 seconds a woman is physically abused by her partner in the U.S.
  • 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her life time.
  • 40-60% of Asian American report experiencing physical and/or sexual abuse in their life.

These are only some alarming statics about domestic violence. Domestic violence does not discriminate age, gender, social status, and race. The Vietnamese American Community Center of the East Bay (VACCEB) is the conduct for domestic violence and get victims referred to the right place.  We understand that language barriers can be a major factor in preventing victims from seeking help. So our translator (currently in Vietnamese only) can help. Throughout the year, we will be making presentations in Vietnamese about domestic violence at the center. Keep an eye on our Event Calendar.
