"Domestic violence is inextricably linked to all forms of violence, and to end domestic violence, we must dismantle anti-Blackness, other types of racism, discrimination, and structures that perpetuate oppression." – Farzana Safiullah & Dr. Johnny Rice II

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights resources for centering racial and economic justice in our efforts to prevent domestic and sexual violence. Featured resources offer strategies for promoting racial equity and dismantling anti-Blackness and white supremacy at every level of the social ecology as we work to build healthy and thriving communities for all.

NEW RESOURCE

HERE and there: An open letter to white women in the movement to end gender-based violence

By Arlene Vassell

"For years white feminism has waged a war against Black women, Black men, Black children, Black babies and our Black communities. With too many causalities to name them all. It wasn’t televised, it wasn’t video-taped, but the pain and scars remain visible in the lunch rooms and board rooms over there. Those most impacted have been silenced on the margins."
