Reimagining Our Legacy: Transforming from Criminalization to Liberation - Part 1

Hosted by: Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance

Date: October 1, 2020

Time: 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST

Description: This 2-part webinar series is inspired by a question posed by activist Mimi Kim: “Why and how did the violence against women movement - an emancipatory social movement - choose criminalization as a dominant strategy…and how has this focus on criminalization affected survivors?”
In this time of emergence, we are called to reflect on the status quo (“the way we’ve always done things”), to reimagine new possibilities that increase thriving, and shed that which no longer serves us. This webinar series will offer an opportunity to reflect on the movement to end gender-based violence’s reliance on the criminal legal system and contemplate the consequences of choosing policing, prosecution, and imprisonment as primary solutions to ending violence. We will discuss the impact of incarceration, discuss concepts of punishment and accountability (and how they differ), and learn about new, liberatory ways to practice accountability and repair that do not require punishment and incarceration

Target Audience: Domestic Violence programs

From a Spiral of Violence to a Whirlwind of Healing: Strengthening Advocacy for API LGBTQ Survivors

Hosted by: Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

Date: October 1, 2020

Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Description: Domestic violence and intimate partner abuse have often been understood in terms of men’s violence against women. However, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified individuals consistently experience intimate partner violence at similar rates as heterosexual women. With 21-55% of Asian women reporting experiences of intimate physical and/or sexual violence during their lifetime, the implications for LGBTQ API individuals are extensive. Yet while the number of anti-violence programs serving Asian and Pacific Islander communities has grown considerably over the last decades, there is little research and still very few culturally-specific resources for LGBTQ survivors of gender-based violence.This webinar will offer a framework for understanding Asian and Pacific Islander LGBTQ experiences of gender-based violence, and the multiple barriers that these survivors face when seeking support. Integrating highlights from the Institute’s September 2019 Roundtable on API LGBTQ communities, this presentation will provide ideas and recommendations for organizations to engage and serve API LGBTQ survivors more effectively.
