Join CONNECT Co-Executive Director, Sally MacNichol and Tiloma Jayasinghe, Executive Director of Sakhi for South Asian Women, for a conversation on Social Justice Approaches to Ending Domestic Violence with a feminist lens on

Wednesday, April 9
6:30 PM

at Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor, Barnard Hall, 3009 Broadway, Columbia University.

This conversation will center around a sneak peak at the highlights of the latest New Feminist Solutions report, to be released this summer, and a conversation about centering the work of the most impacted populations in efforts to develop policies and strategies aimed at ending domestic violence.

This report synthesizes the findings of grassroots organizers building a broader anti-violence movement that addresses links between domestic violence and issues like immigration, transphobia, incarceration, and reproductive justice. Drawing on narratives from activists and organizations working in marginalized communities, Jayasinghe and her colleagues demonstrate that anti-violence movements can be built on the principles of transformation and justice, rather than law enforcement and criminalization.

Reception to follow.
