Sexual and domestic violence impacts all communities. Yet due to structural inequities from historic and present day policies, practices, and norms, inequities in rates of sexual and domestic violence exist by age, sex, race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other factors. Communities that face higher rates of sexual and domestic violence often also face inequities in other forms of violence and trauma. Multiple forms of violence and systemic inequities contribute to high levels of community trauma. How can we ensure that sexual and domestic violence prevention practice addresses these realities? Join us for a web conference that will explore how to infuse equity considerations and an understanding of individual and community trauma in prevention practice. We will discuss themes such as the importance of an asset/strengths-based approach and the importance of promoting individual and community agency in prevention community change efforts.
