Connecting Intimate Partner Violence with Other Social Justice Movements: Working Toward Peace and Safety for All

September 12, 2017

1:45 pm – 3:15 pm

Workshop at GCFV Annual Conference –  1:45 pm – 3:15 pm

The people we serve live complex lives. While our primary goal may be creating safety for someone being abused or holding someone accountable for being abusive, they may struggle to fully utilize our programs or reach their goals due other factors in their lives. These factors, such as poverty, homelessness, healthcare issues, and discrimination, are intertwined in our work with families experiencing violence. This workshop will explore the opportunities that could emerge by connecting the movement to end violence against women to other social change movements. Through large and small group discussion, we’ll explore challenges we face creating cross-movement collaborations and provide strategies for forming meaningful connection and partnerships with groups who share common values and goals with the domestic violence movement.
