The field is at a moment of reflection: many are ready to be a part of the rising energy for racial justice, led by Black activists and advocates. There is a keen awareness that policies, practices, and institutions must be focused on collective liberation to make progress in ending domestic violence. Based upon our own multilayered experiences, each of us has unique steps toward challenging the systems that replicate oppression. 

Shifting the Lens: Survivors and Families Coming Into Focus exists on a foundation of activism and sacrifices from Black, Latinx, Native & Indigenous, Asian and Pacific Islander, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, and Queer people⁠—and along with aspiring white allies, all are working in unity towards racial and gender justice. With four tracks and a total of 28 workshops focused on advancing equity, we strive to honor their efforts, and provide a virtual learning opportunity to defy the status quo. 

We hope you’ll join us. Register today on our event websites in English and Spanish.
