The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund / Legal Network for Gender Equity is proud to present a two-part series: Representing Black women survivors of workplace sex harassment and sexual violence.

These sessions provide a historical and cultural context for sexual violence against Black women and information about skills, awareness, and intersectional legal claims that can help us more effectively support and advocate for Black women survivors.  We are grateful to our presenters and their affiliated organizations, as well as Girls for Gender Equity, for their leadership and collaboration in the development of this webinar series.
