Shared Roots: Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Strategies in Support of Social Justice
Sexual and domestic violence does not happen in a vacuum. Poverty, racism, and exposure to other forms of violence, and high alcohol outlet density are just a few factors that put everyone in a community at risk for teen dating violence, domestic violence, and sexual assault. These very factors are also at the root of social justice movements like living wage advocacy, efforts to dismantle the school to prison pipeline, and Black Lives Matter. Learn from practitioners already engaged in this work and bring your ideas as we explore opportunities and the value added by aligning sexual and domestic violence prevention with today’s social justice movements, and including sexual and domestic violence prevention in these movements.
- Engage in a candid discussion about the factors that sexual and domestic violence prevention and social justice movements are both trying to change, and the real world opportunities and barriers to working across sectors and movements to address them.
- Share examples of work that aligns sexual and domestic violence prevention with today’s social justice movements, and work that includes sexual and domestic violence prevention in these movements.
- Identify tools and resources to better support linkages between sexual and domestic violence prevention and social justice movements.
