Violence In Your Culture

Violence in Your Culture: Not "Just the Way It Is"

You may feel that being abused or mistreated is "just the way it is". You might have seen someone in your family hit, yell at, and control another family member. You may have seen this happen to other people in your extended family. You may feel that it is part of your culture for someone to have the right to abuse others. Remember that there is never an excuse for violence, no matter your race, ethnicity, or religion.
