Strengthening Visibility for Women of Color Digital Event May 14

Had the novel coronavirus pandemic not come to pass, this March five female Detroit activists would have attended the United Nations' Fourth World Conference on Women to talk about women's equality. Their event was to be a parallel event panel discussion titled "Promising Practices for Beijing+25: Strengthening Visibility for Women of Color," but just because it was canceled does not mean the message will not be heard. On Thursday, May 14, at 2 p.m. a digital Zoom event will be held in lieu of a physical panel.

"This is really our opportunity to be a part of that global conversation and it's connecting the local and global together. And I'm very excited. It's a wonderful opportunity, I believe, for all of us," said London Bell, panelist and founder and president of the Bell Global Justice Institute in a previous BTL piece. "I am particularly excited to be able to gather such a dynamic group of women who are incredibly busy, who have expertise [in their fields]; I'm excited for all of us to be there."

Also in attendance will be Deputy Director of the Ruth Ellis Center Pamela E. Alexander, REC Program manager at The Center for Lesbian and Queer Women & Girls at the Kofi House Kathie Grifin-Futch, Founder of the On My Detroit Everything Movement Deidre "D.S.SENSE" Smith and Founder of For the Love Of H.E.R. Famika Edmond.
