When survivors reach out for support and healing, they do so as more than just their experience of violence. They arrive with a range of needs that may be impacted by culture, language, accessibility and their own lived experiences. However, our services and supports are generally designed around areas of specialization, which means that when survivors have needs outside of our specialty, it often means referring them to another organization, which can result in a delayed response to an immediate need. Co-advocacy offers an alternative to this model.  Instead of sending survivors to other organizations for services, the co-advocacy model brings experts together to provide cohesive services that are centered in each survivor’s culture, language, and lived experience. During this webinar a panel of experts from Deaf run, disability, and Latina organizations will discuss their experience engaging in co-advocacy, and will share strategies, tools, and approaches for effective co-advocacy. The webinar will also discuss why the success of this model relies on strong foundational relationships, forged through collaboration rather than informal partnerships, to provide sustainable holistic services for survivors.
