2019 Gendered Violence Conference

The Ithaca College Department of Politics, in conjunction with the African Women’s Initiative of Ithaca is pleased to announce our much-awaited conference: “Freedom from Gender-Based Violence: Prevention, Protection, and Prosecution in the African Diaspora.” The conference will take place on Saturday, June 1st, 2019, from 9:00am to 3:30pm at the Cornell University Africana Center (310 Triphammer Road, Ithaca, NY 14850).

At the conference, we will work through important conversations on how to handle gendered violence in the African diaspora through legal and social lenses. With our wide variety of speakers and discussions, we hope to promote fruitful dialogue on long under-recognized issues.
