Event description
EmpoweRED: responding with hope to violence against women

About this Event

The extent of violence against women cannot be underestimated, nor can its consequences. The impact ripples through every area of society; it affects women, children, families, neighbourhoods, men, lawmakers, law-enforcers, health providers and so many of our social institutions.

EmpoweRED is an event intended to educate, equip, and empower you so that you can help to tackle this violence against women. Focussing on some of the main forms of such abuse, it will ensure you leave better informed ,and inspired and enabled to make a difference.

The day will also offer plenty of opportunities to chat with like-minded organisations and individuals, as well as the chance to enjoy a delicious brunch and Manumit coffee, and to purchase ethical fashion and merchandise.

Run by the Christian charities Press Red and Red Community, this will be a powerful and exciting day: come and join us and help #turnthesilenceoff.

The nature of the event means that it is only open to over 16s, and 16 - 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

  1. Keynote: Andrew Caplen (formerly from Restored and former President of the Law Society)
