✨We are excited to announce that starting November 2020, NRCDV is the new home of the National LGBTQ Institute on IPV!✨

“This new, strategic partnership provides the LGBTQ community with additional resources and opportunities and allows us to better focus on research and practice,” said Marci Taitt-Lamar, Co-Director of the LGBTQ Institute, “while addressing the unique and multiple victimizations and structural oppressions faced by LGBTQ people.”

HERE and there: An open letter to white women in the movement to end gender-based violence

Pause. Stop scrolling. Read this gift from Arlene Vassell, NRCDV Vice President of Programs, Prevention & Social Change. ⬇️

Dear White Women:

Welcome. I’m glad you are HERE. Let’s talk about here and over there.

I hope this time you will stay here. When I saw hundreds of lovely pink knitted hats across the country, I was finally convinced that you were here to stay.

For years white feminism has waged a war against Black women, Black men, Black children, Black babies and our Black communities. With too many causalities to name them all. It wasn’t televised, it wasn’t video-taped, but the pain and scars remain visible in the lunch rooms and board rooms over there. Those most impacted have been silenced on the margins. Like my sister Lina Juarbe Botella would say, on the margin of the margins. You know them well. You should call them by their names. Say Their Names. All Black Lives Matter. So, Say Their Names.
