Women of Color (SCESA) Changing the face of the Anti-Sexual Violence Movement

Author(s): Luz Marquez-Benbow, Condencia Brade
This article describes the process state/territory anti-sexual violence coalitions began to establish opportunity, support and leadership development for Women of Color in the anti-sexual violence movement. It presents a model for addressing the presence of racism in our lives and in our work as anti-sexual violence advocates. The process began with a needs assessment and report reviewing five key issues relevant to Women of Color leadership at sexual assault coalitions. SCESA offers technical assistance around planning and implementation of the report findings. The authors see this type of strategic planning as one component in an effort to establish a more 'coordinated, comprehensive and culturally appropriate response to sexual assault throughout the country.'
