NGWCC is a non-profit organization formed to be a council for educators, administrators, business leaders, parents/guardians, students, community leaders, and community organizations to address and discuss historical and societal perspectives, conduct research, educate, mentor, and be advocates for girls and women of color. We encourage girls and young women of color to join NGWCC as your voices are valuable and needed.
As some of you may know, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). During this month, our anti-sexual violence movement creates and promotes increased awareness about preventing and ending sexual violence by eradicating rape myths, victim blaming, and promoting conversations and curriculums regarding consent and healthy relationships. Young girls and women of color and non-binary people from communities of color are further marginalized and at risk of increased violence due to racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and other forms of oppressions. We would all love to envision creating safe, accessible, and culturally relevant powerful spaces for our current and future generations and peers, isn't it? During this one hour virtual panel moderated by our board member, Dr. Meghna Bhat, panelists will explore what sexual assault awareness month (SAAM) means and looks like for our young girls and women of color. What kind of world are we envisioning which is free from sexism, body shaming, harassment, violence and oppression? How can we collectively work towards this vision?
