Are you interested in being part of reclaiming the narrative on violence against women for generations to come? African Women Australia Inc. is looking for people to join our project as conversation leaders (paid), facilitating discussions in your state/territory that will explore the diverse experiences of Black women and their views on racism, gender inequality and violence against women.
This project aims to build an alternative narrative for addressing violence against women in the national context, cross-link ideas for structural change and build solidarity platforms that link to black women's experiences of violence against women, to other violent systems of oppression. Join our general meeting to hear more.
Date: Monday 17th May
Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Online via Zoom
