FRIDAY 24 NOVEMBER | 10:00 AM – 12 NOON
VENUE: LECTURE ROOM ONE, INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, UWI, ST. AUGUSTINE
Institute for Gender and Development Studies, St. Augustine Unit
Join us to review the EOC’s recommendations for changes to the Domestic Violence Act that can transform and improve the existing legal system and discuss how it can be used to end violence against women. All civil society organisations, NGOs, community activists, media, public officials, law makers, and all those concerned about violence against women are encouraged to participate in this important discussion.
This Public Forum will launch our 16 Days of Activism on Ending Gender Based Violence. Our goal is to engage with civil society organisations, researchers, activists, and others in a conversation about these recommendations and provide an opportunity to ask questions and discuss suggestions for change and action. We will launch a letter writing campaign for change to the Attorney General by signing letters of support for the EOC’s recommendations. This event will also offer a space to share the ongoing work of the IGDS in terms of its outreach activities and research projects on ending gender based violence in Trinidad and Tobago.
