#GIVINGTUESDAY CRITICAL CONVERSATION | WHAT MAKES BLACK GIRLS VULNERABLE TO GBV?
We are holding a Critical Conversation to discuss what makes Black adolescent girls vulnerable to GBV as we fundraise for ATF's upcoming Black girl youth-centered initiative, BRIGHT (Black Girls Revolutionise, Influence Globally, Heal, and Thrive), which will provide platforms encouraging Black girls from across the African continent and the US to uplift their voices and strategise their own solutions.
The discussion will provide a space for ATF and GBV actors to share experiences on what makes black adolescent girls vulnerable to GBV and which strategies work to prevent and respond to violence against black girls. The conversation will also build on the ATF Femicide article (coming soon) to increase visibility of femicide against women and girls in Africa and the African diaspora.
COMING SOON | ATF ARTICLE ON FEMICIDE
In keeping with the 2021 16 Days theme of “Femicide, or the gender-related killing of women”, ATF is develop an article on femicide that will contextualise the unique GBV vulnerabilities faced by Black women and girls across the globe.
Check back soon for updates.
