Black Women In Motion - May 4th


Black Women in Motion Presents:
Introduction to Gender-based Violence, Intersectionality and The Law 

May 4, 2022 – 1 to 3:30pm

Black Women in Motion is a Toronto-based, survivor-led, grassroots organization that empowers and supports the advancement of Black Women, Girls, Non-binary and Gender-non-conforming survivors of gender-based violence. We work within an anti-racist, intersectional feminist, trauma-informed and survivor-centred framework to create culturally relevant resources, healing spaces, educational and economic opportunities for survivors.

This workshop looks at gender-based violence against Black and Indigenous women, girls, Two-spirit and gender diverse communities. Participants will examine how our multi-dimensional and complex social identities intersect with systems of oppression. We will cover the social determinants of health and justice, sexual assault laws in Canada and the need for intersectionality in gender-based violence policy and policymaking processes, reporting and police and prison abolition.

This session is presented by Monica Samuel, Black Women In Motion and hosted by the Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.

Staff please register for this event on the Working at Mohawk site via the Events Calendar.
