National Indigenous Women's Resource Center: Understanding the Dynamics and Tactics of Intimate Partner Violence through the Lens of Indigenous Survivors
Advocacy for survivors of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and social change to end domestic violence requires an understanding of the dynamics and tactics of IPV. This webinar overviews the root causes of domestic violence in Indigenous communities, then focuses on the dynamics and tactics of IPV from a survivor’s perspective. It will highlight the importance of traditional, cultural practices in strengthening and building our capacity to provide effective, respectful advocacy with our relatives surviving IPV and other forms of domestic violence. The goal of this webinar is to bring light to the experiences of survivors and clarify the priorities and role of advocates from an indigenous, grassroots standpoint. Look forward to an interactive and thought-provoking session!
