Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence and Safe Space Policies

Join the Dicentra Collective for a discussion and presentation on the impact of sexual assault, domestic violence, and safe space policies on our lives and our communities.

Thursday, January 8th @ 6pm at In Other Words Women’s Books & Resources, 8 NE Killingsworth (www.inotherwords.org)

The event will include a facilitated conversation to explore the strengths and challenges of the response to sexual assault, domestic violence and safe space policies in our communities, a presentation on the experiences and knowledge of Communities Against Rape and Abuse, and. an exploration of "what's next" for our communities.

We recognize the importance of ongoing dialogue about these difficult issues in order to ensure that our collective energy moves towards deeper understanding and healing rather than disconnection and alienation. We recognize that these discussions can be both triggering and challenging. A team will be available to provide additional support to you at the event.

Questions To Think About Prior To The Event: - In your experience of sexual assault, domestic violence and/or safe space policies, what worked well or made you feel supported? - What would you have liked to happen differently?

Dicentra is a Portland, OR area collective actively engaged in creating radical communities of care, networks of support, and movements based on relationship building.
