Celebrating 40 Years of Collaboration to End Violence Against Women
Friday, January 10th, 10 am
Mezzanine, Covent Garden Market, 130 King Street
London, January 8th, 2020 - 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the London Coordinating Committee
to End Woman Abuse, a network of more than 30 community organizations dedicated
to an integrated response to supporting abused women and engaging men to take responsibility
for their violence.
Throughout 2020 we will host a range of community events that:
- Celebrate & highlight 40 years of community collaboration & successes
- Highlight the importance of LCCEWA and our partner community organizations
- Raise awareness of domestic violence, sexual violence & human trafficking
At the launch we're thrilled to be able to unveil our new logo and website and to
highlight 2020 events, including collecting stories from women & men about their
experiences of domestic violence for the Handkerchief Project.
We will also launch our 2nd Annual Snapshot, which tells the story of community
pressures and crises including Indigenous inequities, violence against women, rising
poverty, mental health, addictions, human trafficking, affordable housing and employment.
The Snapshot connects the dots between social and systemic issues. Understanding
and addressing the complexity of social issues is essential for prevention, informed
policies and prioritizing support. It's especially important for leaders on all
levels to understand that violence committed against women is a bi-partisan societal
issue that has high individual, social and economic costs.
