Committed to Black Lives Matter, Anti-Racism and Anti-Violence
The Black Lives Matter movement has invited all of us into deeper reflection about racism and white privilege. The national conversation has largely focused on policing, but the reality is that racism and privilege are embedded in all of our systems and institutions, even those created with expressly good intentions like those that support victims of domestic and sexual violence or aim to prevent these crimes.
It takes courage and commitment to look at ourselves and our organizations with the intent to learn how the poison of racism lives inside, even when we have the best of intentions to be equitable and inclusive.
Futures Without Violence created Voices from Our Movement: a three-part video series on ending racism and oppression as the heart of our anti-violence movement.
- Video 1: Connecting the Dots: Racism, Oppression, and Work to End Domestic, Sexual, and Intimate Violence
- Video 2: Racism in the Anti-Violence Movement: Impacts on Survivors, Advocates, and Communities
- Video 3: Transformation is Now: Toward an Integrated, Intersectional Movement
