Description: 

This webinar will consist of an analytical and philosophical conversation addressing the needs of sexual assault survivors within communities of color. The webinar will place this conversation in the context of the recent large scale testing in several communities of untested (backlogged) rape kits that have revealed a disproportionately high number of untested kits where the victim was a person of color. Based on their experiences nationally and in the Michigan 400 Project, Condencia Brade from Sisters of Color Ending Sexual Assault and Debi Cain from the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board will be discussing key issues that are intended to broaden the perspective of those who work with sexual assault survivors in communities of color. They will address the unique challenges and provide strategies for working with survivors of color when reopening years or decades old sexual assault cases when evidence was only recently tested. This webinar will consist of an analytical and philosophical conversation addressing the needs of sexual assault survivors within communities of color.
