Standing up for Women’s Lives
October 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
Domestic Violence Awareness Month online discussion
Learn from two experiences of the ongoing, global epidemic of violence against women. Cheryl Jones, a Metro driver, will tell how she was immediately labeled as the offender after a boyfriend attacked her, a scenario that often happens to Black women. Sarah Scott, an advocate on the New Beginnings Help Line, will discuss how the Covid pandemic has increased dangers to people at risk of intimate partner violence. The speakers’ message: feminists must keep fighting for ourselves, our sisters, and our right to a system that protects the vulnerable, rather than punishing survivors. Everyone welcome.
