My Miami Story: The intersection of gender and violence
Oct 15 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The year 2020 is around the corner and changes that will directly affect our region.

On October 15, 2019, our YWCA Miami influencers invite you to join in on our My Miami Story conversation and discuss how mass shootings are uniquely American because the acts — and perpetrators — are emboldened and built by intersections of hate that are deeply rooted in American history. We’ll discuss how gun violence and mass shootings are not singular issues, but intersectional, as gun violence directly targets, threatens and harms the livelihoods of women, LGBT Americans, people of color, indigenous people and many others.

This conversation is part of Week Without Violence. 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. At YWCA, 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. Join us from October 14 to 18 as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.

16th Annual Court Care Fundraiser
Nov 14 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us for our 16th Annual Court Care Reception on November 14, 2019 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

You are invited to enjoy cocktails, hors d’eouvres, a silent auction, and an evening of networking to help raise funds and awareness for the Court Care program.

Court Care is operated as “an intervention and prevention program” and a safe haven for the children of parents, victims, and/or witnesses involved in court proceedings. This program provides child care services free of charge. Trauma on children is reduced by the kids being kept away from Court proceedings.

All proceeds raised at the event will go directly towards our Court Care program.

Make your voice count. Stand with us!
