Maryland Women of Color Network 2020 Virtual Conference

The Maryland Women of Color Network (Maryland WOCN), with support from MCASA, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Rape and Sexual Assault Prevention Program, and Bowie State University, is hosting its Annual Conference, virtually, from 9am - 1pm on Thursday, November 12, 2020 and Friday, November 13, 2020. This year’s theme is Bold & Courageous: Strengthening Community Connections to End Sexual Violence.

Maryland WOCN was founded on October 4, 2000, to advocate in communities of color for victims of sexual crimes, and to provide insight and guidance to the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault on issues of sexual violence that impact women of color. Since its inception, Maryland WOCN has actively worked toward breaking down barriers to service delivery and influencing meaningful change at all levels of women of color.

This conference is open to professionals and community leaders who are committed to ending sexual violence in Maryland. Attendees typically include advocates, educators, faith leaders, non-profit leadership, government workers, health care providers, attorneys, health professionals, and others. People of all backgrounds are welcome. Attendance is free.

The conference will feature keynote addresses by Dr. Tricia Bent-Goodley, Director of the Doctoral Program at Howard University's School of Social Work, and Dr. Vanessa Guyton, award winning speaker, trainer, author, and advocate that is dedicated to Victim Advocacy and assisting individuals going from Victims to Victorious.
