Voices From Our Movement: Anti-Racism as Violence Prevention
A new video series from the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Voices from Our Movement: a 3-part video series on ending racism and oppression as the heart of our anti-violence movement.
Across the country, domestic and sexual violence advocates are working to address the ways that racism and oppression impact survivors’ health and self-determination. They are thinking about how history impacts peoples’ lived experience of violence today in our world; they are shifting advocacy practices to better meet the needs of survivors and advocates of color; and they are looking at how the anti-violence movement can resist racism and oppression as one of the most important ways to prevent violence.
The National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, sat down with a few of the advocates who are knee deep in this work to learn about their perspectives, stories and strategies. They have compiled what they have had to share into a short, 3 part, videos series in hopes that it helps others who are also thinking about these intersections.
Video 1: Connecting the Dots: Racism, Oppression, and Work to End Domestic, Sexual, and Intimate Violence
Video 2: Racism in the Anti-Violence Movement: Impacts on Survivors, Advocates, and Communities
Video 3: Transformation is Now: Toward an Integrated, Intersectional Movement
These videos can be watched on your own, or used to spark discussion in a group! The page includes sample discussion questions + facilitator’s tips, a glossary of terms, video transcripts, and a small next steps resource guide which can all be found at the link below.
