Enhanced Advocacy and Safety Planning for Immigrant Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence, Part II Tuesday, Oct. 24 3 - 4:30 p.m. EST  Abusers often use the threat of immigration enforcement as a way to maintain power and control and to make victims less likely to seek protection.

This training will also provide updates on recent immigration policy developments and new enforcement measures that impact immigrant survivors.

Intersectional Framing in Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Services Tuesday, September 26, 2017 9:30AM-11:00AM PST/12:30PM-2:00PM EST Intersectionality, a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, describes the ways in which identities work together to inform how a person or group of people interface with other individuals, institutions, and systems. African American survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault have historically been at the center of research and policy aimed to uplift intersectional approaches to understanding and responding to gender-based violence—and it remains of importance today. Please join NBWJI for a webinar featuring Ms. Tonya Lovelace-Davis, Executive Director of the Women of Color Network, Inc. and Ms. Dereca Blackmon, Dean, Stanford University for a discussion on understanding how intersectional framing can increase the capacity for technical assistance providers to better respond to DV/SA survivors.
