E3: Ending Violence, Ending Criminalization

You’re invited to SistahSpeak! Youth Project™’s to our 2nd E3 event, “Ending Violence, Ending Criminalization” on March 25, 2017 from 11A-4P at the Irma Freeman Center (5006 Penn Ave, 15224)!

Our 2nd event is themed “Ending Violence, Ending Criminalization” and as a community will co-construct strategies to end state and interpersonal violence, and learn basic self-defense and awareness tactics.

This event is FREE, includes lunch and childcare is available upon request.

Join us for an early afternoon workshop (11A-12P) focused on self-defense and awareness tactics. Following this, join us for our afternoon panel (1P-3P) to discuss the current and historic impact of criminalization and violence against Black women, femmes, and girls, such as the school-to-confinement pipeline.

The E3 series will take place on March 11th, March 25th, and April 8th from 11A-4P, and cover the topics of Black HERStory & the Social Justice Movement, Ending Violence, Ending Criminalization, and Organizing 101 for Young Black Women and Femmes. Through grounding workshops and core teach-ins, our goal is to uplift issues affecting young Black women, femmes, and girls and equip them with the skills to become life-long leaders in our communities and the broader intersectional movement.
