Attention UK Monsters: Valerie's Law

Featured Posts


I am not from the UK myself but I've been following FKA twigs on Instagram and she is very passionate about this: Valerie's law. 

Make specialist training mandatory for all police and other government agencies that support black women and girls affected by domestic abuse. Police and agencies should have culturally appropriate training to better understand the cultural needs of black women affected by domestic abuse.

Too many African and Caribbean heritage women have not been afforded the same level of support that is offered to others. This can only be addressed by Cultural Competency training being rolled out across the police and other government agencies. Without specialised training, it is practically impossible to support, or risk assess black women. This often puts black victims at increased risk.

To support this and allow the petition to be addressed by the parliament, you can sign using the link below. You cannot sign if you are not from the UK, but feel free to share if you know someone who can!
