Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors: A Toolkit for Enhancing Critical Knowledge and Informing Action within the Crime Victim Assistance Field
This webinar introduces information to learn about a new resource for the crime victims field, the Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors toolkit. This resource centers the voices and lived experiences of older Black victims seeking supports and services from the crime victims field and it names the various structural oppressions within society and the victim assistance field which limit the ability of older African American victims to access critical supports and services. Through a series of guided conversations, participants in this event will interface with the different parts of this toolkit, including content modules, video clips, and a reflections workbook. Participants will also have the opportunity to dialogue with and learn from subject matter experts and staff of the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life about specific strategies to enhancing services for older African American victims in their work. Moderated by Juanita Davis and Katie Block and featuring panelists LaTrice Buck.
