Please support us as we undertake this amazing work by co-sponsoring this Summit, registering, and/or passing on this information to your network and community.  Join us in taking a stand together, marking Indigenous People’s Day as a day when we will begin to create a new vision and a plan for action that originates within our communities.

Preventing Violence, Promoting Justice will provide the opportunity to explore and mobilize around the intersections between domestic violence, immigration, economic justice, health and other related movements for social justice, between current frameworks, and towards building a movement rooted in our community values.  This will be an opportunity for women of color and allies to come together to address violence in our own voices, in the contexts of our own histories, on behalf of our own communities and a broader collective vision for justice!
