Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation, a project of Futures Without Violence, and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas developed a new safety card tool for farmworkers and for the professionals who work with them, on intimate partner violence, health care access, and relationship support. The tool, No Estás Sola: SALUD, SANACIÓN Y RELACIONES SALUDABLES (English translation — “You’re Not Alone: HEALTH, HEALING, AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS”) provides information on healthy and unhealthy relationships, their impact on health, and national resources for support. The safety card tool is part of Futures Without Violence’s evidence-based CUES intervention.
An accompanying info-sheet was created for those who support farmworkers to detail how the card was developed and by whom; how to use it with community members/clients/patients and about “CUES”; and how to download the PDF and request hard copies. This 2-pager (in English and Spanish) highlights how the safety card tool may be used to support farmworkers experiencing domestic violence and shares information on COVID-19 vaccinations and health center support.
