Focusing Our Efforts to Stop Domestic Violence!

The North Bronx Section of the National Council of Negro Women is pleased to announce our domestic violence conference, “Focusing Our Efforts to Stop Domestic Violence!” We have joined with W.E.S.D.A., the Women's Empowerment Self-Defense Academy and CONNECT to discuss and promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month as we work together to prevent domestic violence and to help heal our community.  

Real Life, Real Talk

This "Real Life, Real Talk" event will feature guest speaker Miss Mahalia Watson, MA, formally from Tulsa, OK, and now a native of Jacksonville, AR. She is an educator, a motivational speaker, a recording artist, a runway model, an ordained evangelist, an author, and the founder of the much-acclaimed Anti-Fist Project. In 2010, Mahalia had an epiphany. A sister with scars, an aunt left paralyzed, and countless other women in her life inspired her to take “uniting a nation in protest against domestic violence” to another level.
