We are continuing to explore lessons learned by participants from our effective data visualization training series we conducted with Dr. Stephanie Evergreen. I interviewed a few training participants to hear about how their data storytelling has shifted and the larger impacts they’ve experienced.

I had the opportunity to connect with Erin Chambers, Visual Communications Designer from the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence (MOCADSV) to learn how data storytelling is evolving for state coalition staff.

When the pandemic hit and we weren’t able to meet in person like we usually do with our Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) partners, we realized we needed a new plan.  Part of the new plan included a fantastic partnership with Dr. Stephanie Evergreen to conduct a series of virtual trainings on effective data visualization. These trainings have forever changed the way we tell our prevention stories.

June 19, 1865 is a day that is held in high regards for this country, but more importantly for Black people who have come before, those in today’s society, and those who will come in the future. NSVRC/PCAR are proud to recognize Juneteenth with the knowledge that racism and anti-Black racism is the root cause of sexual violence. I encourage everyone to check out the blog PCAR/NSVRC are proud to honor Juneteenth to learn more.

Juneteenth recognizes the end to slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running African American holiday. The day officially became a federal holiday on June 17, 2021.

I recently had the immense privilege of speaking to five Black movement leaders about their experiences of anti-Blackness in the movement to end gender based violence and steps we can take to create a movement that is inclusive of Black workers and survivors. 

A recent Mother Jones article discussed what many have known to be true for a long time: that racism - Anti-Blackness, specifically - exists and persists in our movement to end sexual violence. The article, How the Mainstream Movement Against Gender-Based Violence Fails Black Workers and Survivors, written by Madison Pauly, captures the lived experiences of several Black colleagues.

The past two decades have witnessed a surge in the creation of online travel communities. With that, new worries and concerns about safety have arisen- specifically for women, trans folks, LGBTQIA+, Black, Muslim and other marginalized and historically oppressed communities.

The teal is out, the events have been planned, and the 2022 SAAM campaign is in full swing. With the theme of Building Safe Online Spaces Together, I wanted to highlight some fantastic resources that are held within the NSVRC/PCAR Library collection. My hope is that folks can potentially use these and our many other resources to enhance the campaigns that centers and organizations have worked tirelessly to execute.
