Come to the International Summit to End Sexual Violence with ideas, leave with understanding. Come to the Summit to learn about high profile cases and ongoing legislation efforts, leave with deep-rooted empathy and awareness of assault survivors who walk countless miles from you and your shoes. Come listen to keynote speeches by award-winning authors and viral-Youtubers, and leave the Summit ready to speak up and take action in your own community.
The International Summit to End Sexual Violence is a two-day event that will be as fun as it will be educational, and as humbling as it will be inspirational. In addition to the many speakers presenting from near and far, the Summit also includes a multi-talent spectacular of original pieces written for the Summit by a Grammy-winning artist, a “Yoga for Healing” hour featuring many of New York City’s most in-demand yoga instructors, in addition to numerous breakout sessions and networking opportunities.
Over 100 organizations and hundreds of dedicated volunteers bond together to produce the Summit. This event exists to further the collective goal of bringing strategy, positive energy, broadened interest, and passion to the international conversation against sexual violence.
