At our March SAIV NYC - Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence - meeting on
Friday, March 21, 2:30 - 5:00 PM 
at the Brooklyn YWCA30 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217

we will be hosting a performance of “Running Days are Done”, followed by a rich discussion. “Running Days are Done” is an engaging, thought provoking dramatic presentation based on collected interviews with women survivors of sexual abuse. During the performance, playwright/actress Michelle Nickens brings to life the voices of disparate women who defy cookie-cutter notions of victimization – they are fully dimensional and fully human, telling the stories of their lives with courage, honesty, and even humor. As they share their stories, we begin to recognize ourselves in them, to think, to feel, to sort through, and even to celebrate. 

Please join us for this performance and discussion. All are welcome!

SAIV NYC (Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence) has been formed because our religious and spiritual traditions compel us to work for justice and the eradication domestic violence, rape, child sexual abuse and all forms of intimate violence. We call upon people of all religious and spiritual traditions to join us!
