  • The goal of this discussion is to “shift the focus” of dominant conceptualizations of violence that maintain an idea of victims/survivors as typically white, heterosexual women.

Ultimately, we aim to broaden the discussion of violence in different communities to effectively address violence as a social epidemic.
