Racial & Economic Equity for Domestic & Sexual Violence Survivors

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

1:00 - 2:30pm EST

Description: This webinar will introduce CSAJ’s Legal Impact for Racial & Economic Equity for Survivors Project (REEP), a national TA Project that seeks to address the barriers of implicit and explicit discrimination, institutional bias, and structural oppression to enhance access to economic justice for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Faculty will describe REEP, introduce project partners, and explore what approaches and strategies a Race Equity framework may have to offer advocates working with low and no-income DV/SA survivors of color. We will describe the REEP Project activities, including: a National Impact Agenda, groundbreaking Impact Demonstration Sites, a Survivor Story Corp for Policy and Litigation, and a Legal Race Equity Impact Library. Also, we will discuss REEP's upcoming Impact Assessment, which will illuminate the economic barriers and lift-up current advocacy approaches that are particularly effective at enhancing the economic wellbeing of survivors of color and addressing the economic barriers they face.

Attendees should walk away with:

  • an understanding of the REEP Project's purpose and activities,
  • a general understanding of Race Equity Approaches to policy, legal, and systems change,
  • connection with a community of VAW and Race Equity advocates to work with as you strategize approaches (REEP partners and each other),
  • approaches to aid in identifying and addressing the systemic barriers facing survivors in your community.

This webinar is open to LAV, Rural, CLASSP, Underserved, State/Territorial Coalitions, and Tribal Coalition grantees of the Office on Violence Aganst Women, and all other nonprofit service providers who work to enhance advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
