The onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic has exposed the ongoing health inequities that Black women face. While Black women can experience violence and dehumanization when seeking health care in general, this is especially true for survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. This disparity makes it difficult to access care and trust the health systems as a whole. In order to address these intersecting oppressions, we must prioritize building community with survivors and dismantle systems that promote violence against Black women. Join our guests as they discuss how to center Black survivors in the fight for health equity and violence prevention.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Explore the intersections between health equity for Black women and interpersonal violence
  • Address the impact of anti-Blackness when Black women seek care
  • Strategize ways to partner with survivors in order to heal and build community
