All Communities are Not Created Equal: Advancing Health Equity Goals to Enhance Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention

Thursday, June 26, 2014
11 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific
2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern

How can the movement to prevent sexual and domestic violence become more equity focused? What does it look like to acknowledge the impact of race, class, sexual orientation and ability in the development, implementation and evaluation of prevention efforts?

Join us Thursday as we explore these critical questions.

Guided by the framework established in CDC’s recent publication, A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity: Community Strategies for Preventing Chronic Disease, for which Prevention Institute provided extensive input and writing assistance, this webinar will delve into the connections between health equity and the prevention of sexual and domestic violence and explore opportunities to better support health equity as a part of prevention initiatives.
