Web Conference on Violence Prevention – TOMORROW!

8 03 2011

Raising consciousness about oppression and gender issues is an increasingly important aspect of preventing sexual and domestic violence. But how does critically re-evaluating the social world fit in sexual and domestic violence prevention? Many efforts struggle to incorporate root causes of violence, and this web conference presents ways these challenges have been embraced in local efforts. Guest speakers will share their strategies to raise critical consciousness and dialog with participants about ways to help others develop an understanding of sexual and domestic violence linked to a broader social context of oppression and privilege.

Tuesday, March 8 and
Wednesday, March 9

This ninety-minute (90 min) session will start at 11 AM Pacific Standard Time (2 PM Eastern) on March 8, and will be repeated at 11 AM Pacific Standard Time (2 PM Eastern) on the following day, March 9.
