The Intersection between Racial Equity and Preventing Relationship & Sexual Violence


Webinar hosted on June 11, 2020 | +Webinar Recording

During a very critical time in our history, it is imperative that within the movement to end relationship and sexual violence, we remind ourselves of our role against racism. 

As Black people across the country are leading protests demanding racial justice, we must do more. A hashtag is not enough.

We invite you to join us in doing more! 

The Prevention Peer Network’s webinar elevated the conversation about racial justice, reminding us all of how the root causes of relationship and sexual violence stem from a culture of oppression and privilege.

Research and statistics show us the facts: violence disproportionately affects marginalized groups more, especially those who experience multiple forms of oppression. Racial injustice is one of those forms of oppression. 

Preventionists across our state are continuously speaking up about the importance of being an upstander, standing up against violence and oppression with ACTION! 

But this conversation requires that we all participate. That is why we are actively inviting Executive Directors, Board Members, management, and crisis intervention staff to join us on this webinar. We will hear from Executive Directors, in our field, who are centering on their values of racial justice and commitment to ending violence of all forms.

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” is a frequently used quote to illuminate the role we all have in creating a more just world. In these difficult and violent times, how can the DV field meaningfully show up for racial justice? What is the role of donors and board members in the organization’s decision-making process on how to show up?  What impact do those decisions have on your team, your community?
