Native communities and communities of color experience violence against women at significantly higher rates and have significant health-related disparities with devastating effects on otherwise vibrant communities. Using a health equity lens to examine violence against women highlights how policies and practices (structural racism) have created health disparities in violence against women.

Facilitators will use a highly interactive timeline activity to familiarize participants with the historical context of racism and sexism in our communities. Using tools like the Spectrum of Prevention provides a public health framework for the primary prevention of sexual violence, domestic violence, and sex trafficking, and can create a more equitable and safe future.
