Beyond a Seat at “The Table”: Approaches to Supporting Black Survivors of Homicide Victims, with Tanya Sharpe
February 28, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Alumni, students, faculty and members of the public are invited to the next lecture in the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work Alumni Association’s 2021-2022 Alumni Series.
Housed within the FIFSW, The Centre for Research & Innovation for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims (The CRIB) is the first Centre of its kind in the world—and is quickly becoming a catalyst and focal point of a coordinated effort to address structural inequities that contribute to homicide disproportionately experienced by Black people throughout our global communities. Join us for a discussion on the development of culturally responsive, interdisciplinary approaches to research, policy and practice designed to meet the unmet needs of African, Caribbean, Black (ACB) survivors of homicide victims.
Date: Monday, February 28, 2022 **NEW DATE**
Time: 6:30pm—8:00pm EST
