The Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women and Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Gender Equity Team are partnering to host an art exhibit commemorating Women’s History Month, March 2019. The exhibit will center on the strength of women who have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, and human trafficking through the theme “Shifting Narratives: The Strength of Women Survivors.” The launch of the art exhibit and a special event in recognition of the artists will take place on Friday, March 8, 2019, International Women’s Day.
The goal of the exhibit is to celebrate art that:
Raises awareness of the strength of women survivors of homelessness, domestic violence, and human trafficking;
Draws attention to the intersection of female homelessness, domestic violence, and human trafficking;
Increases public understanding of a survivor’s journey while addressing misleading narratives and perceptions;
Mobilizes support and resources to address the specific needs of survivors and unsheltered women.
