For the second year in a row, the Fourth Universalist Church on the Upper West Side has chosen CADV as their V-Day beneficiary. V-day is a worldwide movement to end violence against women and girls. Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities.  Join us and the Fourth Universalist Church this year in two special events to prevent violence.

The Fourth Universalist Church will hold a cocktail party on February 13th featuring guest speaker Judy Norsigian, – a founding member of the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, an organization best known for their perennial book, Our Bodies Our Selves.  Judy is an internationally recognized activist for Women’s Health Issues including reproductive freedom, midwifery, and sexually transmitted infections. The night begins at 6PM – there is no cover charge and there will be free hors d’ouevres! The Church’s address is160 Central Park West  New York, NY 10023.  Please RSVP here or contact Erica at Erotman@centeragainstdv.org for more details.

V-day celebrations will continue on March 23rd and 24th when the award-winning Vagina Monologues play will be performed at the Church.  Join us for a night of laughter, tears, and solidarity in the fight to end violence against women. While there are over 40 V-day events and performances this year in New York City, this is the only one to take place in a religious space.  Again, the Church’s address is 160 Central Park West  New York, NY 10023.
