A first step toward creating an accessible, empowering, and safe environment is listening to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are affected by substance use and substance use coercion, as well as to their advocates.
This webinar shares lessons learned from the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s Women in Recovery Caucus (WIRC) members working together to better extend trauma-informed services and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault experiencing barriers to services related to substance use. WIRC is the first caucus dedicated to mutual support and organizing for their constituency in the United States. Panel members will share their experience, strength, and hope and offer empowering options to reduce attitudinal and programmatic service barriers often experienced by survivors of multiple forms of trauma and harm.
