This supplement is intended for use in conjunction with our human rights report, Battered Mothers Speak Out: A Human Rights Report on Domestic Violence and Child Custody in the Massachusetts Family Courts. It is primarily intended for survivors, advocates, researchers and others interested in replicating the project in their own communities. In it, we provide sample documents used in each major phase of the project, and brief explanations of the context in which they were used. We also provide resource lists of other human rights documentation projects completed in the United States and other organizations in this country working on domestic violence, child custody and family court issues. We hope as well that these materials will serve as a broad model for integrating research with social action and public education.
