Justice will not be served, until those who are unaffected will be outraged as those who are. ~Ben Franklin~
Blame. Fear of Authority. Lack of Peer Support. Language Barriers. Survivors of assault and domestic violence around the globe are faced with many obstacles as they tirelessly seek justice. Many do not speak up. Those that do seek justice are often misunderstood and blamed for their experiences.
We view our world through our individual lens often with the narration of our own voices. During this powerful session, an advocate and a forensic nurse will begin by sharing an overview of challenges faced by survivors seeking justice. Then they will engage in a thought-provoking conversation with panelists from diverse cultural backgrounds from around the world (possible panelists from Asia, Africa, Europe) to explore the following questions: What does justice mean to survivors, including immigrant survivors? How does justice look similar or different in various parts of the world? What empowers survivors to keep going?
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Recognize, compare, and contrast challenges survivors and service providers from diverse cultural backgrounds face.
- Identify and review religious and cultural considerations in the context of domestic and sexual violence.
- Explore helpful tools and successful strategies service providers can use to help all survivors seeking justice.
