Gender-Based Violence and the Latinx Community

In this webinar, a panel of experts will share what the field currently knows about gender-based violence in the Latinx community. The first panelist will discuss cultural beliefs and stigma surrounding the help-seeking process for survivors of intimate partner violence; and how to better support service engagement and programming. The second panelist group will address gaps in understanding sexual violence rates among Latinx students and their rates of, and experiences with, disclosure and reporting to law enforcement. A moderated Q&A session will follow the presentations. 

Learning Objectives:

  • To develop a better understanding of help-seeking behaviors among intimate partner violence survivors.
  • To identify patterns of cultural beliefs, stigma, and partner violence in the help-seeking process of intimate partner violence survivors.
  • To better support service engagement and IPV programming for survivors of partner violence.
