Presenters in this Learning Network Forum will address both personal and structural aspects of gender-based violence work in a range of contexts, including working to protect children, covering gendered news stories, developing and using online platforms, and administering justice.
Participants at this Forum will be better able to:
- Describe structural violence and its implications for gender-based violence work
- Delineate how institutional racism and oppression amplifies experiences of abuse and compounds marginalization
- Understand how various systems (e.g. child welfare, justice), policies, and media can constrain and/or empower individuals and communities
- Identify pathways to allyship, agency, and systemic reform
