Prevention Connection‘s latest newsletter is pretty fantastic. It includes audio recordings from the 4th Annual A Call to Men conference (PDF), held last spring in NYC. If you’re not familiar with the project, A Call to Men “challenges men to reconsider their long held beliefs about women, in an effort to create a more just society. We achieve this by encouraging change in the behaviors of men through a re-education and training process that challenges sexism.”

Domestic Violence Among Women of Color

leave a comment »

HRSA‘s Maternal and Child Health Bureau has an archived webcast, Domestic Violence Among Women of Color. It’s a 90 minute session and is presented by an esteeemed panel that includes Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell of Johns Hopkins University. The site gives you multiple options for accessing the webcast, including audio, PowerPoint slides, and written transcripts. Truthfully, it feels like the surface is only skimmed on this issue; any portion of the presentation could be its own 90+ minute program. Nevertheless, there are few offerings available on the distinct issues facing abused women of color, so I’m pleased this is available in an archived edition.
