Diana Mancera has been invited as a presenter with three of our national partners. As part of the Coalition Mentorship Webinar Series, she created a webinar called "A Movement Within the Movement. Diana provided this synopsis: "To root out gender-based violence, we need a movement against racism, biases, and oppressive practices within the anti-violence movement. Coming into this field, I was taught that sexual and domestic violence knows no class, race, or education level. Yes, that's true, but the systems and services set up for survivors do know class and race."
Diana was also invited to present an "Ignite Talk" at the national Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) convening. "Community Organizing: Leading Together for Change" addressed the need to create prevention strategies that reflect the specific needs, assets, and priorities of a community and focuses on building relationships. She will present a longer version of this talk as a workshop at the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 17th annual conference.
