Mapping Forward from Violence Against Women

  • Capitol Visitor Center, Room 217 Washington, DC, 20004 (map)

We are #MappingForward from violence against women in DC through a grant won from the UNA-USA “Stand Up for Human Rights” partnership with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Whether you have a #MeToo story of your own, know someone with a #MeToo moment, or want to see an end to violence against women, come learn about this innovative, grassroots project that maps stories onto places. Following the introduction of the project, hear from experts in a panel discussion featuring:

  • Rachel Moynihan, DC office of UN Population Fund (UNFPA)
  • Elisabeth Olds, Expert Consultant, DC Sexual Assault Victims Rights Act (SAVRAA)
  • Rachel Friedman, Deputy Director, Men Can Stop Rape
  • Lindsey Silverberg, Director of Advocacy & Case Management, Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC),
  • Heather Hill, Chair, United Nations Association of the National Capitol Area (UNA-NCA) (Moderator)
