This presentation will help participants understand the root causes of sexual violence, its prevalence, its impact on survivors, and the dynamics that make sexual violence a stigmatizing crime.
Objective: To assist presentation participants in gaining knowledge around the dynamics of sexual violence and skills to advocate for survivors.
The presenter will discuss how perpetrators of sexual violence chose victims based on perceived or created vulnerability and lack of credibility. Oppressed communities are often perceived as more vulnerable, and have less perceived credibility than privileged classes of people and therefore are often targeted by perpetrators.
Presented by Fawn Livingston-Gray (Call to Safety, formerly the Portland Women’s Crisis Line)
