Between 2011-2012, Sakhi for South Asian Women convened two meetings of grassroots organizers
 to address the challenges of
building a broader anti-violence movement. These events explored the intersections between
 domestic violence and such issues as immigration, transphobia, incarceration, and reproductive justice. While communities of color have always been disproportionately affected by such kinds of violence, they have also often been marginalized by the mainstream anti-domestic violence movement. This latest installment of the New Feminist Solutions series distills the findings of these gatherings and foregrounds stories from communities of color that are responding boldly to domestic violence within a social justice framework. Drawing on narratives from activists and organizations working in marginalized communities, the report demonstrates that movements can be built on the principles of transformation
and justice, rather than on law enforcement and criminalization.
