Responsibility for ending child sexual abuse is a collective responsibility. A foundational component of this important work – survivors’ experience, self-determination and leadership – is too often silenced or met with a glass ceiling of involvement. For survivors of color, LGBTQ survivors and male survivors, we can do so much more in our existing services and in our movement, to be more welcoming and inclusive. This workshop brings together Ahmad Greene-Hayes and Amita Swadhin, nationally recognized survivors, powerful speakers and important leaders in our movement to address the role of survivor leadership in preventing child sexual abuse.
This web conference is part of PreventConnect’s #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series. You can find recordings, materials and resources for the 27 web conferences from 2012-2017 here.
