Event Details

For the first time in Sakhi for South Asian Women's 20-plus years, we will be hosting a game-changing summit for social justice leaders! 

Preventing Violence, Promoting Justice:

A summit organized by Sakhi for South Asian Women. 

Co-sponsored by the Women of Color Policy Network at the NYU Wagner School of Public Service and the Barnard Center for Research on Women.

Join us as we take a stand together, marking Indigenous People’s Day as a day when, together, we will begin to create a new, community-focused vision and a plan for action that includes our voices and perspectives.

 More than "anti-violence", we are coming together to talk about what we are for: social justice in all of our communities.

 

REGISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION INFORMATION

 

Registration for the full Summit is now CLOSED.  We are unable to accomodate anyone who has not registered. We apologize for this inconvenience.  All seats have been sold out.

SUMMIT PROGRAM

Preventing Violence, Promoting Justice will provide the opportunity to explore the intersections among domestic violence, immigration, economic justice, philanthropy, health and other related movements for social justice and to mobilize action between and beyond current frameworks. We want to shift the focus to our communities and create a new community-based, collaborative vision that reflects our histories and experiences!
