Leading Feminist Organizations Convene Summit
to Discuss Solutions for Sexual Harassment
Enough is Enough Summit & Briefing April 25, 2018;
March 15, 2018
WASHINGTON – The Enough Is Enough campaign, launched in December by coalition partners National Organization for Women (NOW), Feminist Majority, National Congress of Black Women, UNITE HERE, Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, and Legal Momentum are holding a one-day summit and congressional briefing on April 25, 2018 in Washington, D.C. These groups are bringing together activists and allies to discuss strategies and craft initiatives to combat sexual violence and develop survivor-centric solutions on the ground, in the courts, and in Congress.
Through panels and discussion, the event will serve as an opportunity to listen to a diverse group of people – from survivors themselves to various activists and allies working across different industries and sectors. These participants will not only share their first-hand experiences with sexual violence and harassment, but help lay a groundwork of recommendations for actionable solutions. The goal of Enough is Enough is to shine light on what sexual harassment looks like for different communities, and how together we can work to craft informed solutions that address these specific barriers.
