Expanding Spanish-language accessibility on

June 30, 2015

Domestic violence affects people of all ages, genders, races, and ethnicities. Through WomensLaw, a project of the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), our goal is to provide as much information to as many survivors as possible. has more than 10,000 pages of information – and we hope to eventually make all of it accessible to Spanish-speaking survivors.

Today, between one-third and one-half of is translated into Spanish, including state-specific legal and safety information for fifteen U.S. states. Through funding from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), NNEDV will increase this number to eighteen. Georgia represents state sixteen and will be completely translated into Spanish by the end of 2015!

In addition to expanding state-specific information in Spanish, WomensLaw is also overhauling various parts of its website and adding new legal and non-legal information in Spanish and English. For example, check out our newly revised Choosing and Working with a Lawyer page, now in Spanish and English. We are also undertaking the massive task of updating, adding a description, and translating all of the legal and non-legal resources that we list on our Where to Find Help page for the 18 states that have (or will have) legal information in Spanish.

We have also laid the groundwork for in-person outreach to the Spanish-speaking community, beginning in Washington, DC. This will be the first time in many years that WomensLaw has reached out to the Latina community to spread the word about the resources available on and educate the Latina community about domestic violence, family law, and immigration.
