Specifically, intersectional racism and sexism among Black women will be thoroughly examined. The oppression and monolithic representations of Black communities, and the commodification and hypersexualization of Black women's bodies render Black woman vulnerable to victimization and shamed into silence. In order to better serve Black women and create better outcomes regarding intimate partner violence, it is imperative that these determinants be addressed.

March Webinar - Beyond Shelter: What Do Domestic Violence Survivors Need?

In this 90-minute webinar you will hear from:

  • Dr. Amanda Stylianou, Associate Vice President of Quality & Program Development,
    Safe Horizon
  • Kelly Coyne, Vice President of Domestic Violence Shelters, Safe Horizon

On Wednesday, March 20th at 1:00 PM EST, Safe Horizons will join NCADV to explore ways to enhance services to survivors of domestic violence utilizing emergency shelter programs. According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, there are over 25,000 survivors receiving emergency shelter services in the US on a single day. For survivors in crisis, domestic violence shelters offer safe refuge. Shelters have been found to reduce the frequency and intensity of ongoing violence and are often ranked by survivors as the most helpful service available. But beyond shelter, what do domestic violence survivors need? Is there more that can be done to meet the needs of residents and their children? The webinar will highlight the following topic areas: how to (1) increase funding for shelter programs, (2) improve access to trauma treatment, (3) enhance financial literacy and job training programs, (4) reduce barriers to affordable housing, and (5) support survivors in maintaining community and family connections.
