A Message From Felicia Chew, Founder of the Domestic Violence Support Services Project:
As a survivor of domestic violence, I understand the isolation that victims and survivors feel. I understand the PTSD that occurs in victims and survivors. I understand the fight, flight, or freeze reactions that occur.
I see the gaps in services and relationships. There is fear from all sides:
- from the victim’s perspective — the shame, the blame, the guilt. I see the helplessness, the hope-a-holicness, the apathy.
- the perpetrator’s perspective,
- the friend’s perspective,
- the child’s perspective,
- the bystander’s perspective,
- the advocate’s perspective,
- the lawyer’s perspective,
- the judge’s perspective,
- the law enforcement officer’s perspective,
- the public defender’s perspective.
