F22 Gender Based Violence and the Latinx Community

September 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Free

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. The webinar is being held by the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
