            Creating Impactful Inclusion in Advocacy:                   A Panel Discussion

Thursday, February 17, 2022

9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. (EST)

Domestic violence creates significant fear and trauma for survivors, but for many, the impacts of systemic racism and oppression further violates their trust in systems and isolates them from being able to access resources to seek safety and healing. 

Meaningful inclusion requires us to amplify the voices and experiences of diverse communities. In this training and panel discussion, you will hear the perspectives of advocates with diverse identities as they discuss the challenges, barriers, and impacts of oppression that survivors in unserved and underserved communities face, as well as learn how to create impactful inclusion in your advocacy work with domestic violence survivors.
