Organizational Culture: Centering Racial Equity

The movement to end domestic and sexual violence has a long history of marginalizing and silencing the voices of women of color. In order to end gender-based violence and other forms of injustice and create true social transformation, domestic and sexual violence organizations need to center the needs of marginalized and underserved communities, particularly survivors of color. This means building organizations that center racial equity in every aspect of the work, which requires cultural shifts. Nonprofits need to cultivate practices that honor diverse cultures, lived experiences, identities, and traditions, as well as create brave spaces for individuals to fully show up as their whole selves. Resources in this section explore ways in which nonprofits can work to dismantle structural racism and promote racial equity within their own organizations.
