Harmful Gender Norms: How can alliances be built with queer (LGBTQ) movements to help prevent sexual and domestic violence more effectively?

Harmful Gender Norms- Moving beyond binary and heteronormative approaches to preventing sexual and domestic violence

Ensuring that prevention efforts reflect the diversity of a community is a fundamental part of a commitment to health equity.  Join us in conversation about the necessity of engaging directly with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer community members at the decision-making table to truly enhance prevention outcomes. This webinar will address how alignment with LGBTQ movements and identities is a necessary component of countering the harmful aspects of gender norms that lead to sexual and domestic violence.

  • Share real world examples of alignment with LGBTQ movements and identities as a necessary component of countering the harmful aspects of gender norms that lead to sexual and domestic violence.
  • Identify tools and resources to support alliances between and with queer (LGBTQ) movements and sexual and domestic violence prevention efforts.
