Support the petition for a Domestic Abuse Bill that protects everyone
The Government's Domestic Abuse Bill does not protect all victims of domestic abuse equally.
There are huge gaps in what the Bill proposes: excluding migrant women from accessing support, overlooking the effect of domestic abuse on the children who live with it, insufficient funding for those facing multiple forms of discrimination, and failing to address the needs of the many victims who receive support in the community.
How can it be that there are care workers, NHS workers and key workers serving the public right now in the Covid-19 crisis who would not be equally protected if they needed to escape abuse?
Surely it is about all of us, or it is about none of us. Sign our petition to support a Domestic Abuse Bill that leaves no victim behind.
