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.
This report describes the next phase of the Survivor-Centered Advocacy Project, supporting four field research teams to translate their findings into practice aimed at transforming the field.
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.
By the Korean American Coalition to End Domestic Abuse
This report is an effort to document and reflect on the experiences of queer and trans Korean survivors of family or intimate partner violence. It shares key findings of the Queer & Transgender Korean American Survey on Family and Intimate Partner Violence in Our Community, as well as two in-person focus groups.
Ten cutting-edge organizations, including API-GBV, came together in four facilitated learning sessions to reflect on practices that lift-up survivor-centered approaches.
