The Impact of Racial Oppression on Human Trafficking

February 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Presented by End Slavery Cincinnati

In this workshop, we will explore some of our own biases when we work with survivors specifically from black, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) communities in the anti-trafficking movement, as well as discuss the implications of not having culturally sensitive staff, policy, and procedure. We will ask hard questions, and have difficult conversations while we self evaluate ourselves, and critically evaluate needs your own organizations might have when working with/for BIPOC survivors. You will receive tools, including tips on cultural assessments and competency training to take back to your communities to begin the process of changing systems to better support BIPOC victims. Do NOT be the problem, but together let us find the solution. This presentation is recommended to those who have intermediate knowledge of working directly with survivors of sexual violence. Objectives: - Provide insight into the impact that the ideology of colorblindness has on the sexual violence movement. - Develop understanding around the term historical trauma and use history to see the impact trauma has had on BIPOC communities for generations. - Provide tools to attendees to take back to their organizations to build culturally fluent practices to best support BIPOC survivors of sexual violence.
