Health Equity Series: Violence Against Indigenous Womxn

February 21, 2019 @ 12:00 am

Sexism, Colonialism, and Health Equity
The Community Equity Consortium in partnership with
Colorado Trust invites you to attend its third Health Equity Learning Series presentation of 2018-19, featuring Taté Walker (they/them). When it comes to experiencing violence, Indigenous womxn* face extreme marginalization at the crossroads of several identities and social structures. The combination of identities and oppressions related to sex, gender and race, among other identity/social aspects, are deeply tied to and intensified by the history and ongoing impact of settler colonialism.
This presentation by Taté Walker provides critical context to these and other violent realities from cultural, historical, systemic and gender-based viewpoints. You will come away with an understanding of the health inequities experienced by Indigenous womxn due to sexism and colonization, as well as strategies to demand and achieve justice for Indigenous womxn and their communities.
