"If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all the systems of oppression." – Combahee River Collective
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) 2021, the Domestic Violence Awareness Project is turning up the heat on last year's call to action: No Survivor Justice Without Racial Justice. This October and beyond, we must center, celebrate, and follow the leadership of Black survivors, leaders, advocates, and frontline workers in our efforts for social transformation. Racial justice is our work.
This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter features resources and upcoming events that highlight the importance of centering racial justice in our prevention work, for DVAM and beyond.
