Anti-Blackness in Gender Justice Movements

This webinar will look at the colonial roots of gender-based violence within Black communities and take a Black intersectional feminist approach to discussing survivor believability and service provision within post-secondary environments.

This session will introduce and deepen participants understanding of concepts of misogynoir, texturism, colourism, disability justice and anti-2sLGBTQQIA violence and its impact on Black communities.

Participants will explore their role and responsibilities in promoting environments that address the intersections of anti-Black racism and gender based violence.
