Working on Racial Justice Across Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence Coalitions
Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence in Seattle, WA leveraged the expertise of 6 sexual assault and domestic violence coalitions (CA, IA, and WA) to strengthen the social change trajectory of anti-violence work. These states worked in partnership with marginalized communities to develop and implement organizational, systemic, and community-level prevention strategies that aim to increase racial justice practices and deepen partnerships between sexual assault and domestic violence coalitions.
This project brought together 6 state coalitions in IA, CA, and WA focused on how to deepen partnerships across sexual assault and domestic violence organizations by working specifically on racial justice and race equity.
Hosted 2 in-person meetings (January and April 2017).
The project enabled the group to gather on multiple occasions and helped inform the whitepaper development.
