Stop Violence Against Women Day Event at the Georgia State Capitol Featuring Cry$tyle as the Voice of the Campaign

Stop Violence Against Women Day Event  
at the Georgia State Capitol

Stop Violence Against Women Day is an annual event held at the Georgia State Capitol at which advocates, survivors, and allies come together to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence against women and to advocate for laws and policies that enhance safety and promote justice for survivors.   This event gives attendees an opportunity to get connected with each other and with the larger movement to end violence against women. It also gives them an opportunity to foster relationships with their legislators in order to inform them of how domestic and sexual violence is impacting the lives of their constituents and their communities.

Stop Violence Against Women Day begins on February 3, 2011 at 8:00 AM with breakfast and educational briefing at Central Presbyterian Church, 201 Washington St., SW, Atlanta, GA 30303.  Attendees will be escorted to the Capitol building across the street to talk to their legislators before the day is ended with an inspirational and powerful rally in the Capitol's Rotunda at 12:00 noon. 

This year, GCADV's celebrity spokesperson, Grammy-nominated, Singer-Songwriter Cri$tyle, will be in attendance and share how she has been affected by domestic violence and what inspired to her start the, "Be the Voice," campaign.
