We're pleased to announce our next UNC Gender-Based Violence Research Group Speaker Series event, co-sponsored with the LGBTQ Health Disparities Research Collaborative:
Compulsory Identity, Rape Culture, and Violence Against LGBTQ+ People: What the Evidence Tells Us and Where It's Lacking
Speaker: JP Przewoznik, MSW - Director of Prevention & Evaluation, North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA)
JP will share what is currently known about the casual factors of sexual violence against LGBTQ+ people, including a proposed theoretical model for why violence perpetration may be more likely to occur. JP will discuss
the field of SV prevention as it relates to strategies to counter violence and propose some additional research needs for the field.
JP Przewoznik, MSW (she/her), is a trainer, technical assistance provider, practitioner and program evaluator with over 20 years of experience working with and within LGBTQ+ and women’s communities. She is currently
the Director of Prevention and Evaluation at the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA) where she provides training and technical assistance to rape crisis centers and college campuses working on sexual violence prevention efforts. JP organizes
with The LGBTQ Center of Durham, is the Durham-based organizer for Gender Reel, a national film festival by and about Trans*, Genderqueer, and Gender Non-Conforming people, and is on the National Leadership Team for Force: Upsetting Rape Culture. She lives
happily in Durham with wonderful friends, an amazing girlfriend, and many furry babies. In her spare time you can find JP very unironically listening to The Boss’s Born in the USA on vinyl.
