Learning and Knowledge Exchanges
This webinar discusses the unique experiences of female identified adolescents of African descent in Canada, and their experiences with gender based violence in schools. Specific attention is given to cultures of violence, how they manifest, and the need to attend to prevention, as opposed to the current focus on punishment, when addressing the intersectional experiences of Black girls.
This webinar identifies trauma and violence informed frameworks that are both relevant and responsive to the intersecting realities in Black women’s lives, especially with an increasing number of Black women being charged with perpetrating violence against an intimate partner.
This companion toolkit accompanies the report “Colour of Violence: Race, Gender & Anti-Violence Services,” and details key barriers for racialized survivors seeking safety and offers best practices in developing anti-racist interventions that better supports Indigenous, Black, newcomer immigrant/refugee, and racialized survivors.
This study addresses Black women’s victimization and criminalization by examining the ways in which criminalized Black women’s intersecting identities of race, class, and gender influence how they perceive, experience, and respond to intimate partner violence (IPV).
