BENEFITING: GLOBAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN
In partnership with the Duluth, Minnesota based Domestic Abuse Intervention Project and the World Future Council in Hamburg we are hosting a much needed capacity-building workshop for our international partners. Our workshop will build the skills and, just as importantly, the will to enforce new domestic violence laws – which is a growing challenge in many countries where new laws have passed.
We have confirmed the participation of teams from Latvia, Lithuania, and Tajikistan, and a representative from Kazakhstan. All of the countries participating are in ideal situations to benefit from our training and we need YOUR help to bring them to Minnesota.
Each country has relatively recent domestic violence laws, but the legal professionals don't have the expertise or capacity to implement the laws effectively. Our training will address these issues and provide tangible solutions. In addition, we have developed a follow-up plan to continue working with participants on implementation and enforcement of their laws after the workshop.
We are seeking support to help fund the delegations for our training and invite you to join us!
We envision a world where women’s human rights to equality and freedom from violence are fully realized. Thank you for joining us!
