Gender-based violence affects 1 out of 3 American women in their lifetime, and is even more likely to impact women who experience further marginalization due to race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic standing, and more. The pervasiveness of gender-based violence in America makes upcoming legislative actions like the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) a crucial element of achieving full gender equality.
In order to create prevention and response policies that truly work for all survivors, advocacy must center their diverse experiences and needs. Whether a survivor or an advocate, we all must start by understanding the connections between government policies and the experiences of survivors in our communities—on the local, state, and federal level.
This Take Action Tuesday, tune in to our free, on-demand Advocating for Survivors Webinar, featuring Ebony Tucker, Advocacy Director of the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence (NAESV) to get important updates on upcoming legislation, and learn how you can advocate for survivors.
