This webinar, presented by the Joint Task Force Social Justice Subcommittee, was originally presented as an interactive three-part series. This comprehensive recording linked below covers the material from all three sessions. The times for each part are noted in the descriptions below, so you can move around the recording as needed.

Part 1 (Foundations of Social Justice in Our Work- 00:00-14:40) discusses common ideas about social justice- going beyond the basics to how social justice applies in the field of domestic and sexual violence. The presenters define social justice in a broader sense and large scale concepts, then narrow down how this applies to us as individuals and our works as advocates.

Part 2 (Challenging Privilege, Bias, and Inequity- 14:40-24:50) builds off of the foundations learned in the previous (but not required) webinar. During this session, we apply the concepts of privilege, bias, and equity in a virtual group activity. Through the eyes of others, we challenge our own thoughts and assumptions and look at how this affects the clients we serve. (Note: due to the structure of this webinar, there is not a recording available.)

Part 3 (Putting Your Toolkit Into Action- 24:50-43:51) the presenters demonstrate resources and activities complied in the Social Justice Toolkit. Whether you are a director or manager and have the ability to make agency-level change or an individual advocate just looking to do better, we will walk through how to utilize this toolkit to create positive social change.
