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.

FREE Self-Defense Class for Women and Teens

Please join Masada Tactical and CHANA for our 7th Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month FREE Self-defense class. Learn a little about domestic violence in our community, resources in our neighborhoods, and learn a lot of different tools and techniques to protect your body. This class is free and open to women and teens of all ages and physical abilities. Come to snack and socialize, and leave knowing how to help a survivor of domestic violence. Kosher light refreshments will be provided. Please bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable clothing.

I'm a Survivor

A special domestic abuse awareness event dedicated to facilitating activism and helping victims become survivors. The conference will include testimonies from actual survivors of domestic abuse, a self-defense class, and speakers/leaders from the local community on what we can do to "take the lid off the silence" of abuse. Doors open at 8:30am.

5th Annual National Call of Unity

Domestic violence affects everyone–women, children and men–and everyone must be part of the solution. On this annual, free 45-minute call, several national organizations, governmental agencies, local domestic violence programs, advocates, allies, survivors and their family and friends gather together to connect and refocus our efforts to end domestic violence. Please dial (877) 594–8353 and use the passcode 751-52-623# to join this call.
