Trauma, COVID-19, and Supporting Black Survivors at Rutgers

October 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

As part of the Enhancing Victim Services Project ​funded through the NJ Attorney General’s office, ​the Center on Violence Against Women and Children at Rutgers University’s School of Social Work presents an online workshop with guest speaker Wagatwe Wanjuki, award-winning anti-rape activist.

This workshop uses a trauma-informed lens to examine how Black student survivors are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, current racist violence, and past and intergenerational trauma. It will examine how university systems and policies impact Black students’ experiences of interpersonal violence, including how faculty and staff can perpetuate anti-Blackness in our response to survivor disclosures. The session will include action steps to support and empower vulnerable students and actively engage in anti-racist practice in the classroom and beyond.

Online via Webex

This is a training session intended for Rutgers faculty and staff. Register in advance to receive WebEx access to attend virtually. For more information, please contact Faculty and Staff Training Coordinator Kaylin Padovano at

This event is cosponsored by the Rutgers Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; the Rutgers Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) Offices; and the Rutgers University–New Brunswick Title IX Office.
