NGO CSW/NY organizes the civil society side of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). The NGO CSW Forum runs parallel to the events occurring within the UN Headquarters. This provides civil society the opportunity to engage in the processes and events of CSW without ECOSOC-accreditation or a UN grounds pass.
Over the two weeks of the Commission on the Status of Women (March 14 – 26), NGO CSW/NY organizes more than 500 events that inform, engage and inspire grassroots efforts and advocacy needed to empower women and girls.
Harnessing the Power of the Church to End Domestic Abuse
Hosted by WEA Women’s Commission, the webinar on the intersection of domestic abuse, religious persecution and faith will draw on the expertise of three community level speakers from three continents, to be followed by a guided panel discussion.
The program will also include an innovative pre-recorded drama based on the experience of teenage girls in Nigeria.
The event aims to be a wake-up call to evangelical churches on the seriousness of domestic abuse and gender-based violence, and also show how the research and on-the-ground experience of Christian groups is invaluable in helping government and UN bodies have a more effective impact.
When: March 19, 2021, 9am EDT / 2pm GMT (The event will last for 90 minutes)
Where: Online, via Virtual NGO CSW Forum 65
