Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. YWCA Hartford Region invites you join us for our virtual Week Without Violence video series airing on Facebook Live from October 19th -23rd.

At YWCA Hartford Region, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence to share information and stories, and advocate, with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.

Our Week Without Violence video series will highlight content that captures domestic violence from different perspectives, uplifting the overlaps in culture and the importance of cultural responsiveness.

Friday, October 23rd: A Survivor’s Story told through Art: A survivor’s story interspersed with a virtual art gallery of domestic violence by editorial illustration students from the University of Hartford.

Together we can remove the stigmas and shadows that overlay the experiences of domestic violence and incite women to take a courageous stance against gender based violence.
