Now what? Beyond statements of solidarity
Virtual Forum Session
This session is part of the broader 2021 Virtual Forum, Looking Within: Anti-Black Racism and the Gender-Based Violence Sector in Canada.
The Forum runs Jan 18, 19, 20 and brings together the voices and insights of Black activists, advocates, academics, artists and service providers from across Canada for a series of dialogues about complicity and accountability in the gender-based violence sector on issues of anti-Black racism.
In this session, participants will learn about how white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and state violence have come to shape both gender-based violence and the gender-based violence sector in Canada. Join us as panelists discuss why violence against Black women and children must be understood within this broader context, and how this awareness is essential for informing accountability within the gender-based violence sector.
