Health Equity in Practice: Why anti-racism is an integral part of sexual violence prevention

Wednesday, 9 August 2023

Health Equity pushes us to grapple with how social factors like economic security, access to food and stable housing, and social inclusion impact our health. As preventionists, we have to understand what influences each of these factors, in order to change them. 

This workshop might be for you if you’re wondering how systemic racism and oppression are connected to sexual violence prevention, and how it shows up in our prevention work. Most importantly, we’ll discuss what we can do about it

Join PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence (OAESV) to explore how health disparities based on identity are created and what role our work in the movement to end sexual violence plays in perpetuating or opposing racism.
