Court Watch has produced business cards with info in Amharic on how to get help if you are the victim of domestic violence. More detailed information is available in a one page Amharic flyer.  The materials direamharic-dv-cards-fin-print-page-1ct those in need to the Family Justice Center during the day, and 24/7 to the Crisis Center. Victim advocates there will immediately get interpreters on the phone if no Amharic staff is available.
