The Institute builds collaborations across LGBTQ Anti Violence and Domestic Violence fields, leveraging the strengths of each to improve impact. We increase public awareness and enhance state, local and national efforts to prevent and address LGBTQ intimate partner violence. We know the power of visibility, solidarity and real access to civil protections.
Este seminario se centrará en la importancia de crear conciencia sobre el contexto de la vida de personas LGBTQ como un componente clave en la intercesión creativa y eficaz con sobrevivientes LGBTQ. A través de compartir historias y ejemplos, expandiremos nuestra comprensión de las fortalezas, vulnerabilidades y barreras que sobrevivientes LGBTQ enfrentan cuando navegan sistemas y comunidades. Al igual abordáremos las consideraciones únicas enraizadas en las experiencias vividas de los sobrevivientes LGBTQ para las planes de seguridad y la intercesión.
Presentadores: Edric Figueroa & Sydney Pk, intercesores de comunidad de La Red Noroeste
Ilene Stohl, a prevention expert from the Washington State Coalition Against DV, will join us to talk about WSCADV’s youth education tool, In Their Shoes. In Their Shoes is a dynamic education tool, created in collaboration with diverse youth. Designed with the classroom in mind, In Their Shoes is an engaging way to talk with young people about healthy relationships and abuse. It is LGBTQ inclusive, and brings racial and social justice issues to the forefront in ways that push the envelope while still fitting within the school setting. With In Their Shoes, students participate by ‘becoming’ one of six teen characters and then confront decisions and consequences relating to texting, pregnancy, homophobia, and dating violence. Participants make choices and read about interactions with their dating partner, family, friends, school personnel, police, and others. Join us for this webinar where you’ll learn best practices, tips, and tricks for facilitation, including how to manage homophobia that may come up in classrooms regarding the LGBTQ characters.
A limited number of participants will RECEIVE a free copy of the In Their Shoes kit, which contains everything you need! (usually these cost $150!)
