Walking in balance with all our relations: Leadership from and partnerships with Indigenous communities to end gender-based violence and restore wellbeing

Thursday, 9 September 2021

Through culturally rooted practices, Indigenous women, two spirit, nonbinary, and transgender leaders are transforming relations among humans, more-than-humans, and the whole of the earth, working to end gender-based violence and restore wellbeing. At the same time, organizations that are not Indigenous-led or -centered are building stronger partnerships in mutuality and reciprocity with Indigenous communities to support language justice, culturally-rooted health and healing, and tribal sovereignty. Join PreventConnect and the Prevention Institute in this conference where participants will learn about Visioning B.E.A.R. Circle Intertribal Coalition’s prevention education and training and technical assistance work to eliminate interpersonal violence in tribal, intertribal, or multicultural communities. Participants will also learn about emerging work at The Center at McKinleyville to promote racial justice and equitable partnerships with Indigenous communities in Humboldt County, California.
