In honor of Women's History Month and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, we’re working to get 100 new members to join our ranks before Women’s History Month ends on March 31. Will you be one of them?
Perhaps you have been a CWNY member in the past. Consider renewing your membership before March 31 so we can continue the fight for women's rights.
Our Domestic Violence Panel hosted by CWNY President Victoria Pilotti on February 12 was a great success. Expert panelists addressed this critical topic, followed by Q & A periods. Among the panelists were Susan Jacob, Executive Director, New York City Family Justice Center; Sergeant Joseph Alohan, NYPD Domestic Violence Unit; Amanda Burden, Training and Outreach Supervisor, & Rita Abadi, LMHC, Mount Sinai Sexual Assault Violence Intervention Program (SAVI); Shilpi Chatterjee, Domestic Violence Program Advocate, Sakhi for South Asian Women; Jennifer Ruiz Diaz, Sexual Violence Project Coordinator, Violence Intervention Program, Inc. (for Latina Victims); Joan Serrano Laufer, LMSW, Executive Director, Queensboro Council for Social Welfare; and Jaqueline Harounian, Esq. & Joseph Bracconier, Esq., Wisselman, Harounian & Associates.
