Racial Identity and Violence: The Experiences of an Intersectional Identity

Presenter: Ana Sanz-Saumeth

Professional Title: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Specialist at Ujima, Inc.: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community

Sorority Affiliation: Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. (Multicultural Greek Council)

Date: Monday, March 15th

Time: 6-7PM EST

Description: Gender-based violence work has centered its services and messages around the dominant culture, which heavily excludes our most marginalized communities and identities. This disservice is a direct erasure of the Black voices who initiated and carried out the anti-violence movement as we know it. The more this harmful cycle is perpetuated, the less we see of the very real experiences Black survivors must endure. We want to address how holding a standard of racial consciousness within our organizations can empower Black survivors and their stories.
