About the Event

In November 2021, we convened over 250 advocates to ask how we could shift our movement’s lens and broaden our focus to address survivors and their families fundamentally within our domestic violence responses in California. Together we addressed many relevant issues such as is our work transformative, are we preparing youth and Emerging Leaders to move the work forward, and are we learning to not only be Trauma-informed, but to also be Healing Centered? In the months since, we have made intentional efforts in continuing to move these questions forward in how we show up and do the work while exploring what legacy we want to leave.

If this sounds like a conversation you’d like to join, submit a workshop for Shifting the Lens! In November 2022, we will continue to broaden the focus and engage a larger community to find answers to pressing questions that impact survivors, families and communities. What happens when we shift the lens and look at domestic violence with a broader view that includes discussions with opposing and unified viewpoints?
