Advancing and connecting racial justice and sexual violence prevention during the COVID-19 pandemic

Wednesday, 14 July 2021

COVID-19 is not the only pandemic we are facing.The pandemic of racism caused by white supremacy has been causing harm, violence, and inequity for centuries, especially against Black people and communities. Sexual violence preventionists know that racism is a root cause of sexual violence, and there can be no prevention or health equity in the absence of racial justice. Join the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and PreventConnect on this web conference where guests from Ujima, Inc. and Girls for Gender Equity will describe their racial justice and sexual violence prevention in action, what’s changed during COVID-19, and their guidance for how mainstream organizations and the movement to end sexual violence can pivot to new ways of doing our work.
