Amnesty International Report Calls for Improved Responses to Domestic Violence in Louisiana
Amnesty International, a global human rights organization, has issued a research report detailing Louisiana’s systemic responses to domestic violence and calling for improvements.
The report, Fragmented and Unequal, found that “The US and Louisianan authorities have failed to meet their obligations to exercise due diligence to prevent intimate partner violence and to effectively investigate, sanction and provide remedies in cases of violence. Survivors of intimate partner violence in Louisiana face an inconsistent and potentially harmful response from the institutions whose responsibility it is to protect them.”
