Telling Our Stories: Sexual Violence-
From the Holocaust to our own Communities
One in three women will experience sexual violence in her lifetime. In Minnesota, there were an estimated 6,900 rapes in 2016 but only 53 convictions.
World Without Genocide will host an event on Tuesday, April 4 to commemorate April as Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The theme is ‘Engaging New Voices,’ bringing together women who have survived sexual violence in schools, in the military, in churches, families, workplaces, and bedrooms- and in places like Rwanda, Guatemala, Burma, Indian boarding schools, and more.
Women across age, ethnicity, religion, experience, and nationality are invited to gather to share stories, listen to one another, and unite to improve efforts to end the violence.
This event will be held on Tuesday, April 4, 7:00-9:00 pm, at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, 875 Summit Ave, St. Paul, Kelley Board Room. The event is free and open to the public; no reservations are required, and attendees may participate anonymously.
Co-sponsored by the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
