On Wednesday, April 4, at 7:00 p.m, a community based event located in Saint Paul, MN is intended to create awareness and education about violence toward Women of Color.
Very little news, research, and community outrage occurs when Women of Color are survivors of violence or die at the hands of domestic, institutional, and community violence. This event is dedicated to those Women of Color survivors and deaths.
This event calls for No Excuse for Abuse toward Women of Color.
