At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally, and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why we work every day to end gender-based violence, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking.

Join us for a conversation with the leaders of YWCA's programs for African American women survivors and learn about the impact of gender-based violence in our community. This event will kick off YWCA's "Week Without Violence: Black, Bold & Brave" from October 18 - 24. 

Featured speakers for this session include:

  • Patricia Hayden, Chief Program Officer (YWCA)
  • Doris O'Neal, Director of Gender-Based Violence Specialized Services (YWCA)
