How do we take theory and values about health equity and put them into action? This web conference will focus on how practitioners and advocates are centering the margins in their prevention work – meaning sharing power with and elevating opportunities for groups who have been historically and continue to be marginalized. Whether based on gender, race, disability, sexual orientation and or other factors, certain groups are disproportionately impacted by sexual and domestic violence. Join us as guests and participants share how they’re moving beyond identifying inequities and why they exist, to taking action to improve health and safety, with a focus on elevating those most impacted.
