Description: 

For five years, the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault has organized the highest profile, public event to break the silence around sexual violence in New York City. And we are inviting you to join the chorus of voices.

The Sexual Assault Yearly Speak Out is a day-long community event in Union Square Park. Through personal testimonials, poetry, music and spoken word, survivors, advocates, activists, and artists raise public awareness about where to get help and how to end the epidemic of sexual violence in New York City.

This year's fifth annual SAYSO! takes place on Friday, May 9th, from
noon to 10:00 pm. There will be performances with survivor testimony, as service providers distribute resource materials to approximately 3,000 people expected.

On behalf of the SAYSO! organizing committee, I invite you to be a
part of this special day. We are seeking artists and organizations
whose work speaks to a diverse audience. Your involvement would
contribute enormously to our efforts to reach out to more New Yorkers than ever before.

Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me. Further information on SAYSO!, including photographs from past events, can also be found at

Description: 

The aim of the conference is to inform thinking and practices around key issues and trends related to adolescent girls. Recent years have seen a growing interest in the topic of adolescent girls as a strategic group in addressing poverty alleviation and gender equality. While the experiences gained through years of programmes in promoting protective environments in schools, working to eliminate harmful traditional practices, and addressing sexual abuse has provided a growing evidence base, there has not yet been sufficient empirical evidence or knowledge generated to drive effective and innovative policies. The 5th International Conference organized by the Graduate Program in International Affairs at the New School and UNICEF will review current global trends and ideas regarding adolescent girls, explore ways to fill the knowledge gaps and showcase lessons learned and good practices for effective and strategic policy making.
