14 Jan We See You Sis: Centering Black Survivors in the Fight for Health Equity and Violence Prevention
Presented by PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence / email@example.com
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.
