Join us for our three part series dedicated to deepening our knowledge about how many traditional system responses fail to meet the needs of survivors of sexual assault and/or domestic violence and in fact punish survivors for the very things they do to stay alive.
When behaviors of survival are punished instead of understood as a need for holistic, community-based, survivor-centered support, survivors are funneled into the criminal legal system. How do our current models of intervention in sexual assault and/or domestic violence fail BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and Other People of Color) and LGBTQQI+ survivors? What are the pathways to and realities of incarceration that exist for survivors of SDV in MA? How can we reimagine our communities and approaches to uplift and center the needs of communities most impacted by violence?
Come join us as we engage with local and national experts to explore how each of us can play a part in undoing the criminalization of survival in Massachusetts. (Times are in EST)
