Webinar Description:

In the fourth part of CSAJ’s Racial & Economic Equity for Survivors Webinar Series, we welcome partners, Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence and Texas Council on Family Violence. The goal of this webinar is to: put an intersectional advocacy framework into practice and offer concrete strategies for systems change to address racial, cultural, and gender inequities. Faculty will continue and expand the conversation around intersectional advocacy by illuminating the particular experiences of immigrant and refugee survivors as well as key knowledge/research gaps that could help us better shape our advocacy.
