Culture is too hastily understood as ethnic culture, but in fact we all inhabit multiple cultures simultaneously and need to understand which ones we are operating in to be effective. These training slides, authored by Dr. Sujata Warrier, can be used by advocates to understand the three spheres of culture (of domestic violence and gender inequality, of familial and community values and norms, and of systems) and provide survivor-centered services to survivors.

Survivor-Centered Advocacy in Culturally Specific Communities: A Community-Based Participatory Research Project, 2019

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.
