Join the conversation and get ready to march!

Our next Kitchen Table Conversation, aptly named, This Is Why We March, will be going live Thursday, September 28 at noon.

Register now and join CAWC’s domestic violence experts, Megan Rosado, Colleen Montgomery, along with CAWC staff, as they discuss the importance of public activism that continues to advance awareness and gives voice to those who have been silenced.

During the conversation we will be sharing ideas and phrases to craft signage for the march and rally. Audience participation welcome! We’re encouraging everyone to bring your posters and markers as we create protest signs to illustrate our advocacy and activism!!
