Presentation of Gender Based Violence and Climate Change

In recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, this Monthly Meeting, co-sponsored by the NGO Committee on Ageing, will be tackling the intersection of gender-based violence and climate change.

The program will include a rapid-fire session in which members of our Executive Committee and office staff will ask the speakers a round of questions on gender-based violence and climate change. The meeting will conclude with a ten-minute centering practice guided by Exhale to Inhale, a trauma-informed yoga organization.
