October 5, 2020 to October 30, 2020
As part of DVAM, the YWCA Pierce County is hosting a virtual 21-day challenge. Every weekday you will get an email with various learning challenges such as podcasts, videos, and articles that examine the intersections of white supremacy, racism, and domestic and sexual violence.
Through this challenge, we will explore topics such as white supremacy, criminalization of survival, barriers to accessing services, and transformative justice. By learning about these topics, we will develop a deeper understanding of the barriers that survivors of color face in seeking assistance. We will leave this challenge with tools and skills to better support survivors of color, through strategies that were developed and fostered by people of color (especially women of color).
We hope that you will join us for our DVAM adventure, and we can’t wait to kick it off!
