December Facts & Snacks: Technical Assistance Options for DVP's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Assessment
Dec. 14, noon-1 p.m.
Domestic violence organizations that receive DVP funding are required to conduct an annual Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) assessment, within an Accessible, Culturally Responsive, and Trauma-Informed (ACRTI) framework.
To support programs with this, Violence Free Colorado will conduct a webinar on the National Center for Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health’s (NCDVTMH) Tools for Transformation Reflection Toolkit as an EDI assessment option.
This is not the only assessment tool that DVP funded organizations can use. However, this is the tool that Violence Free Colorado can provide the most in-depth technical assistance on.
Violence Free Colorado supports collective healing by centering accessible, culturally responsive, trauma-informed practices and policies, through acknowledging survivors’ unique experiences found at the heart of gender-based violence and other intersectional oppressions.
Presenters: Miranda Encina (they/them, she/her), Culturally Responsive Technical Assistance Specialist and Brandy Walega (she/her), Technical Assistance and Training Specialist
January Facts & Snacks: Analysis of "Maid"
Jan. 11, noon-1 p.m.
For our January Facts and Snacks webinar, we will analyze the recent Netflix series “Maid.” A few of our staff members will discuss their impressions of the series, how domestic violence and survivorship are portrayed, as well as how these things connect with broader issues of oppression and marginalization. We will also share our takeaways about how advocacy work and individual and community support are presented, our thoughts on best practices, and things to avoid. As always, we will approach our conversation through a lens of accessible, culturally-responsive, and trauma-informed practices.
Presenters: Miranda Encina (they/them, she/her), Culturally Responsive Technical Assistance Specialist; Hannah Colter (she/her) Community Impact Specialist; and Lindsay Christopher (she/her), Housing and Economic Justice Program Manager
Please note that there will be a delayed response to TTA team requests from Dec. 23 – Jan. 3. Thank you!
