A campaign to rethink how the legal system assesses the credibility of a domestic violence survivor’s story.

"I was representing a Latina survivor of domestic violence and the judge downplayed the abuse with offensive racist stereotypes. He told me 'He's just hot tempered because he's Latino. You know what I mean? They have that Latin blood running through them.'"

-Lisa Rivera, NYLAG managing attorney.
