Intersectionality and Survivor-Centered Policymaking & Advocacy

Event Date
Wednesday, June 03, 2020, 12:00PM

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised many issues to the forefront of the national conversation, including, in some circles, the consequences of centuries’ worth of discriminatory and prejudicial policymaking. Survivors of violence from under-served and/or marginalized communities are left particularly vulnerable and caught within intersecting forms of structural inequality.

For advocates hoping to learn more about transformative means and mechanisms for addressing gendered and domestic violence legislatively, our panelists will be discussing intersectionality, a framework for policymaking and advocacy that seeks to address and rectify harm brought onto marginalized communities.

Join the National Domestic Violence Hotline for a virtual round table with subject matter experts with experience on the use of intersectionality within policymaking as what Kimberlé Crenshaw defines as “...a prism, for seeing the way in which various forms of inequality often operate together and exacerbate each other.”
