eSANE: History of the Movement to End Gender and Race-Based Violence: Moving Beyond Crisis to Healing

Objectives: Participants will gain an understanding of the prevalence and impact of individual, historical, generational, and community trauma including climate crisis, participants will recognize the connection between trauma and health disparities, particularly in the realms of mental health and substance use experiences, and participants will learn how gender-based and race-based oppression and violence intersect, leading to higher rates of victimization and lethality.

Trainer: Christina Love (she/her) – Indigenous Storyteller, Survivor, Multi-Level Advocate

Why are women abused more than men? Why are Native American, and our LGBTQ2S relatives physically and sexually assaulted at much higher rates than any other demographic? This training seeks to address these pressing questions by delving into the multifaceted roots of violence that have shaped a culture of abuse and exploitation.

This session will delve into the intertwined history of genocide, colonization, assimilation, and the anti-violence movement. Participants will gain insights into how gender-based and race-based oppression intersect, contributing to heightened levels of victimization and lethality within marginalized communities. Additionally, we will explore the geographical and climatic factors that exacerbate violence, particularly within indigenous populations.

Our aim is for participants to depart with a comprehensive understanding of indigenous culture and the profound impacts these systemic issues have had on every facet of life and community across generations. Furthermore, attendees will learn to recognize the connections between trauma and health disparities, guiding us towards a deeper understanding of the crucial role that justice and anti-oppression work play for all of us.
