#DVAM2021 No Survivor Justice without Racial Justice
“For #DVAM2021 we are turning up the heat on our 2020 theme, No Survivor Justice Without Racial Justice. Domestic violence is linked to all forms of violence. To end domestic violence, we must dismantle anti-Blackness, other types of racism, discrimination, & structures that perpetuate oppression. This October and beyond, the Domestic Violence Awareness Project (DVAP) calls on the domestic violence movement to center, celebrate, and follow the leadership of Black survivors, leaders, advocates and frontline workers.”
