  • Upcoming Webinars:
  • February 24, 2017, 10:00 - 11:00 AM: Racial Justice: Part 1

    In this webinar, participants will gain keen insights into racial and social justice as it relates to the women’s liberation movement. They will understand how intentional and institutional racism impacts the lives of domestic and sexual assault survivors and how differently this looks for women of color who may experience different outcomes and encounter episodes of repeat victimization.

    Participants will explore ways to increase social justice and equality for marginalized and unserved survivors of domestic and sexual violence. They will also explore ways to address cultural diversity within the feminist movement and build collaborative working relationships; thus improving the lives of women of color moving forward.

  • March 17, 2017, 10:00 - 11:00 AM: Racial Justice: Part 2
       

    In this webinar, participants will examine the historical impact of the feminist movement on women’s liberation. They will examine the intersectionality of sexism, class oppression and racism which led to the black feminist movement.  Participants will gain increase knowledge around the color blindness approach which caused women of color to feel excluded from the feminist movement; thus experiencing increased exposure to domestic and sexual violence. They will also explore ways to address cultural humility and increase inclusivity for all survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

  • March 31, 2017, 10:00 - 11:00 AM:  The Prison Rape Elimination Act and Community Collaboration

    This webinar will give an overview of the community collaboration and advocacy standards under the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).  Specific attention will be given to how SARTS (Sexual Assault Response Teams)  and other community partners can collaborate with corrections institutions, how to support and sustain collaboration, and how to use creative approaches to overcome challenges.  Attendees will be given information on one example of how a South Carolina SART successfully collaborates with a local detention center.
