On October 23, 2014, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, PWN-USA is spearheading a National Day of Action to End Violence Against Women Living with HIV.
Please join us for the first Day of Action planning call on
Thursday, September 4, 3 – 4:30pm PT / 4 – 5:30pm MT / 5 – 6:30pm CT / 6 – 7:30pm ET
to discuss this Day of Action as an opportunity to bring the epidemic of violence against women living with HIV onto the field of national action for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Dial-in Number: 1-857-232-0300
Participant Access Code: 5821230#
The day grew in part from the fierce organizing by women in Texas in response to the brutal HIV-related murder of Elisha Henson, and of Cicely Bolden two years prior, in their home state — though violence against women living with HIV, as we know, is absolutely a national issue, with over half of women living with HIV having experienced intimate partner violence, and 58% of transgender women reported violence at home. This brutality cannot continue.
Please bring your thoughts and ideas for how folks can engage in their local and regional areas as well as virtually via social media.
Thanks so much, and please reach out to Olivia at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Hope to hear you on the call!
