Strengthening Victims in Underserved Communities: Mitigating Implicit Biases, Healing and Justice in the Muslim American Community, and Providing Language Justice and Access

Join us for a full day of training, discussion, and networking on how to best serve immigrant populations, people of color, and those with limited English proficiency. This interactive and self-reflective training is intended to increase cultural humility, broaden participant’s awareness of the presence and impact of implicit bias when working with victims in underserved communities, and equip them with tools to engage with clients in more open, respectful and empathetic ways. Additionally, the course will help service providers understand the unique challenges Muslim survivors face and discuss the intersections of gender based violence, Islamophobia and mental health. Finally, this training will address language justice and access in relation to victims of crime, who are LEP or non-English speaking. Participants will learn how to work with clients through interpreters and create inclusive multilingual spaces.

Presented by Sayida Peprah, PsyD, Areeba Siddiqui from HEART Women & Girls, and Lena Moran from Just Communities
