No Survivor Justice Without Racial Justice

"If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all the systems of oppression." – Combahee River Collective

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) 2021, the Domestic Violence Awareness Project is turning up the heat on last year's call to action: No Survivor Justice Without Racial Justice. This October and beyond, we must center, celebrate, and follow the leadership of Black survivors, leaders, advocates, and frontline workers in our efforts for social transformation. Racial justice is our work.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter features resources and upcoming events that highlight the importance of centering racial justice in our prevention work, for DVAM and beyond.

National Prevention Town Hall

PREVENTION TOWN HALL

The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, in collaboration with partners from across the Southern region of the United States, invites you to join us for our second virtual Prevention Town Hall on October 28 and 29 from 1-3:30pm Eastern / 12-2:30pm Central / 10-12:30pm Pacific. This event is an opportunity to dig deeply into this year’s theme for Domestic Violence Awareness Month: No Survivor Justice Without Racial Justice.

  • Day 1: Thursday, October 28: Survivor-Centered Prevention
  • Day 2: Friday, October 29: Transforming Our Agencies to Center Racial Justice 

Building on the momentum from last year’s Prevention Town Hall featuring the East North Central region of the United States, this year's event will explore prevention strategies that center survivors who are most marginalized, uplift grassroots and community-based organizing, honor the leadership of survivors and advocates who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, and promote real transformative change that centers racial justice in our agencies.

“We need to build an entirely new table with all the communities we want to serve.” – Cecily Johnson, Centering Our Work on Survivors' and Communities' Needs & Leadership by Listening to the Needs of Black Women
