Who does violence against women affect? Everyone. We invite you, your team, network and community to join us on March 8, International Women’s Day as we discuss violence and what we can do about it in our communities, workplaces and on the streets of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Town Hall starts at 7:00 pm at City Hall, Port-of-Spain, but we encourage you to join us at 5:00 pm in Woodford Square (opposite City Hall), where we will be gathering for a vigil to honour the women whose lives were taken last year, as a result of violence.

Some of the issues we will be looking during the town hall are:

  • What is violence against women?
  • What is gender based violence?
  • What local and international laws do we have that protect women and children against violence?
  • What are some of the gaps in policy and who do we need to talk to to improve them?
  • How do we build grassroots organisations that can protect vulnerable community members?

Who are we?

Women. Men. Teachers. Psychologists. Actors. Journalists. Fashion Designers. Farmers. Photographers. Home-makers. Students. Mothers. Office workers. Concerned citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

We all have a part to play in creating a safer society for women and children.
