We are a project working on combating violence against women in Egypt. I am soliciting ideas on how to engage parliamentarians on issues related to violence against women. In case you have a work experience on this area, please share it with me. Appreciate all the help and the cooperation.

Population Centered Sexual Violence Prevention
June 23-24, 2009
Quest Conference Center
Join us as we take our work to the next level by addressing the importance of cultural sensitivity and appropriateness in our sexual violence prevention efforts. Nationally known speakers, Sujata Warrier, Director of the New York City Program for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, and Loretta Ross, National Coordinator of SisterSong, will address cultural competency as well as sexual violence through a human rights framework. Local presenters will share their innovative ideas and give effective techniques on working inclusively with specific populations including teens, men and boys, and LGBTQI youth. Specific workshops will also focus on best practices regarding working within school systems and among diverse community partners.
We hope that this conference provides a bridge by which we may cross from our own experience to that of others and back, along the way discovering our similarities, developing a respect for our differences, and in the end embracing the diversity of each individual.
