Raising consciousness about oppression and gender issues is an increasingly important aspect of preventing sexual and domestic violence. But how does critically re-evaluating the social world fit in sexual and domestic violence prevention? Many efforts struggle to incorporate root causes of violence, and this webinar presents ways these challenges have been embraced in local efforts. Guest speakers will share their strategies to raise critical consciousness and dialog with participants about ways to help others develop an understanding of sexual and domestic violence linked to a broader social context of oppression and privilege.
In this web conference, we will describe ways in which service-delivery organizations could benefit from a primary prevention approach to VAW prevention. We will also discuss the challenges of adopting a primary prevention approach within service-delivery organizations. Panelists and audience members will be able to share strategies that have been effective, and brainstorm on ways to work in partnership with service-delivery organizations.

The Sexual Violence Justice Institute @ MNCASA specializes in assisting multidisciplinary teams in designing and strengthening their response to sexual assault victims/survivors. In thier upcoming three-part webinar series, they will explore how teams and communities can move beyond protocols and explore justice making.
