In the fourth part of CSAJ’s Racial & Economic Equity for Survivors Webinar Series, we welcome partners, Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence and Texas Council on Family Violence. The goal of this webinar is to: put an intersectional advocacy framework into practice and offer concrete strategies for systems change to address racial, cultural, and gender inequalities. Faculty will continue and expand the conversation around intersectional advocacy by illuminating the particular experience of Asian Pacific survivors as well as knowledge/research gaps that could help us better shape our advocacy. They will also offer concrete systems change strategies, drawing on examples from the child custody, housing, and other economic issues from their own work and by elevating the ways work on the ground has fueled systems change.
Important Note: Please take some time to take this self-assessment. It should provide you with grounding in preparation for the webinar in how racial and economic inequality is showing up in your work. Faculty will also use it to determine which economic issue areas to highlight.
After this webinar, participants should walk away with:
• An increased understanding of how gender-based violence interlocks with economic insecurity and marginalization, particularly for Asian Pacific survivors.
• The ability to articulate how an intersectional framework can inform your practice.
• Concrete ways to engage in policy or systems change to address economic disparities facing marginalized survivors.
