Date & Time

Thursday, February 29, 2024, 4:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m.




Sarah-Anne Gresham


Sponsored by Mellon Foundation, Ms. Foundation for Women, and the Ford Foundation.

"Protecting Black Women" is a moderated conversation between Dr. Brittney Cooper, Founding Director and Principal Investigator of RAGE Lab, Sabrina Hersi Issa, a human rights technologist, angel investor, and Managing Partner at Democracy Well, and Jotaka Eaddy, CEO and Founder of Full Circle Strategies, a Black-owned and women-led organization committed to curating a culture of anti-racism. This conversation will address the growing problem of digital violence and harassment that Black women and girls are experiencing by envisioning the ways we can mobilize technology companies, governments, academic spaces, and grassroots movements to address the problem.
