“I still don’t know why someone would wait so many years to report a sexual assault.”

“I’d have given him a knuckle sandwich. Hey, pass the cranberry sauce?”

The next few weeks can be a rough time of year for many. For survivors of sexual assault and abuse, family visits can be particularly stressful, and maybe even unsafe.

Tiempo de Volar

(English)

Recuperarse del trauma del abuso sexual infantil es difícil en cualquier circunstancia, no importan quiénes, o de dónde seamos, pero puede parecer imposible para muchas mujeres inmigrantes.

Las barreras idiomáticas, el complicado sistema de justicia y el temor a que pedir ayuda pueda poner en peligro su seguridad y la de su familia son sólo algunas de las razones que hacen que muchas sobrevivientes de abuso sexual carguen solas con el peso de su historia.

(Espanol)

Healing from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse is difficult regardless of who you are or where you’re from. But it can feel impossible to many migrant survivors. Language barriers, complicated systems of criminal justice, and the belief that asking for help could very well jeopardize your personal or family safety are a few reasons many migrant survivors simply carry their trauma burden alone.
