Webinar – Breaking Silence: Exploring the Complexities of Sexual Assault at the Intersection of Race, Caste, Class, and Ethnicity

Wed, April 10, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Episcopal Diocese of New York Task Force on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault presents this webinar for April Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Sexual assault is a deeply troubling and pervasive issue that affects individuals across diverse communities. However, the experiences and consequences of sexual violence are not uniform and are often shaped by intersecting factors such as race, caste, class, and ethnicity. This webinar aims to delve into the intricate dynamics at the intersection of these identities and their profound impact on survivors of sexual assault.
