Conversations Beyond the Borders: Real Talk about the Pandemic of Gender-Based Violence Around the Globe

On March 26, 2021, International Trends & Services Hosted a Webinar entitled, Conversations Beyond the Borders: Real Talk about the Pandemic of Gender-Based Violence Around the Globe. Sponsored in part by the YWCA New Orleans and the New Orleans Regional Chamber of Commerce, the conversation sought to raise awareness of gender-based violence across the African Diaspora, placing emphasis on its disproportionate impact on black women. Webinar panelists included Dr. Petrice Sams-Abiodun (Planned Parenthood), Attorney Sharon Roberson (YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee), Dr. Denese Shervington (IWES), Rev. Nicqi Ashwood (YWCA Geneva), Dr. Roseanne Adderly (Tulane University), and Sandrine Kenol Weiner (YWCA Haiti). The conversation was moderated by media professional and Crescent Chapter of the Links Inc. member, Kelder Summers-Jones. The webinar reviewed the Status of Women in the Bahamas, Haiti, and Jamaica and the striking similarities to the plight of women in the New Orleans area. Crescent City Links has provided annual donations through agencies that support women and children in these countries, as well as to women and children in the New Orleans area.

There were 153 registrants and 87 webinar participants.
