The A-Z Advocacy Model is defined by the nexus of an extraordinary inventory of evidence-informed practices in response to existing and new trends in gender-based violence and inter-and intra-API cultural and linguistic diversity. It is anchored in principles that analyze gendered and racialized cultural contexts, confront root causes, engage in systems change and cultural transformation; all the while, holding women’s equality and empowerment central to community well-being. The A-Z Inventory of Practice and qualitative and quantitative data show how culturally-specific advocacy is operationalized.

The Survivor-Centered Advocacy Project was a California-based research justice project that utilized a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach. This report illustrates the basic principles of CBPR and makes recommendations for those wishing to do a CBPR project that holds historically marginalized communities at the center; and/or those attempting to align or deepen their practices according to what works for survivors from historically marginalized communities.
