Day One will engage women, girls, and allies from across the country through inspiring mainstage sessions, issue-breakouts, opportunities to connect with leading fellow changemakers, and an interactive center with organizations and women-owned businesses. You’ll choose 2 breakouts on Saturday: 1 from Session A and 1 from Session B. When you’re not in your breakouts, you’ll be able to take a break for lunch and explore The Center, where over 150 organizations and businesses are hosting activations!

On Day Two, attendees will fan out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or Community Teach-In’s hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles. Please keep an eye out for an email from your Day Two Host with location instructions.

Violence Against Women: Supporting the Needs of Survivors LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

The United Nations describes violence against women as “the most pervasive yet least recognized human rights abuse in the world,” and it takes many forms: from domestic and intimate partner violence, to trafficking, to sexual assault, and more. Add in the fact that how women experience violence is impacted by our layered identities, and it’s clear there’s no one size fits all solution to providing support to survivors. These panelists are leading efforts to support survivors in ways that meet their unique needs, as whole individuals. Join us for a conversation about what informs their approach and inspires their work.
