Date: Tuesday, September 19th, 2017
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30 pm Eastern Standard Time

The movement to end intimate partner violence has historically been segregated from the movements to end violence against children and sexual violence. While we have made great progress in breaking down these silos in recent years, most efforts to end family violence still center adults and leave children and young people out of the conversation, strategies, and overall work. Join this webinar, featuring Amita Swadhin, a nationally recognized activist who survived years of family violence, including rape by her father. This webinar will explore intersectional and anti-oppression approaches to ending intimate partner violence and emphasize the importance of including children and young people in this work. Amita is a 2016 Just Beginnings Collaborative Fellow and the founder of Mirror Memoirs, a national project uplifting the narratives and leadership of LGBTQ people of color who survived child sexual abuse.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
* Recognize the importance of centering children's welfare in the movement to end intimate partner violence
* Examine child sexual abuse as both a root cause and a tool of other forms of trauma, illness, and oppression
* Explain why the work to end intimate partner violence needs to be intersectional
* Use Mirror Memoirs as a case study to explore what an intersectional praxis to end intimate partner violence and violence against children looks like
