Upcoming Webinar: The Uncomfortable Conversation About Slavery, Sex, and HIV
Wed, April 24, 2019 @ 3-5:00pm ET(2CT/1MT/12PT)
Join presenters Lisa Connors, LBSW, LCPC, NCC, MAC, ABD, for this free NAADAC webinar which will encourage dialogue that looks at the intersection of slavery, racism, sex, and HIV among African American women. It will address myths, stereotypes, generalizations, and micro-aggressions made by society that continue to stigmatize, oppress, and marginalize this population. Having these conversations will potentially ensure that African American women are treaty fairly and justly, especially in a society where racism is rampant.
The webinar titled, “Becoming Prevention Champions in Your Workplaces and Communities" will feature panelists from different disciplines, organizations, and backgrounds in prevention who will discuss how they integrate substance misuse prevention into their work and how prevention supports their programs’ missions and goals.
Drawing on their experience working for prevention coalitions, faith-based organizations, community health centers, and institutions of higher education, panelists will share widely applicable approaches, tools, and resources that can help attendees find Prevention Champions in unexpected environments and disciplines to build community coalitions that will increase prevention investment and action.
