The Impact of Violence, Trauma, and Racial Oppression on Survivors

About this webinar series
Healing is a process that pays attention to a victim’s circumstances, journey, emotions, trauma, and their multiple, intersecting identities. Research indicates that polyvictimization is a crucial factor that hinders underserved victims of crime from accessing healing services. This series will identify and build a clear understanding of how to advance healing practices for survivors from underserved communities.

Presenters: Debra Majeed, Peaceful Families and Nicole Matthews, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition

This interactive webinar will highlight the complexity and various forms of violence experienced by historically marginalized communities, strategies for intervention and intersectional responses being employed by advocates and educators working with survivors from African American, Muslim and Native American populations and undocumented college age Immigrant women.

Registration closes June 7.
