Domestic Violence: Intersections, Awareness, & Creating Communities of Care

Presented by Sakhi for South Asian Women. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

Organized in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, this panel places the issue of domestic violence within broader cultural conversations about patriarchy, sexuality, autonomy, and community accountability. How can we create systems of community accountability? What do these activists and advocates wish more people knew about domestic violence and survivorship? What are key ways we can work to support survivors and break the silence around these issues in our daily lives?

Featuring Stephanie Nilva (Day One), Sharmin Hossain (Planned Parenthood and the Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project), A’Driane Nieves (writer and artist), and Maria D’Cruze (Womankind). Moderated by Joya Dass (journalist and TV anchor).
