Maryland Women of Color Network 2021 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, on Friday, November 19, 2021. This year’s theme is Truth, Transformation, and Healing: Supporting Survivors & Rebuilding Our Communities.

This annual statewide conference serves as a networking and training event for rape crisis and recovery centers, government agencies, faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, community leaders and students to increase knowledge and gain skills related to sexual violence prevention and cultural competency that can be applied in their organizations and within their communities. People of all backgrounds are welcome. Attendance is free.

The event will feature a keynote address by Roberta Eaton, Survivor Resource Specialist of DAWN, a Trauma-informed, culturally responsive and transformative justice-based agency to provide multi-faced services to the survivors and the community: to understand and address power-based violence by providing direct services and education.

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.
