We hope you will join us on April 6th for our gala, Building Resilient Communities, at Cipriani 25 Broadway. This celebration will honor two leaders who have championed gender equity and justice in our community: Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, two time Academy Award and an Emmy Award winner, and Rashmy Chatterjee, Chief Marketing Officer, IBM North America. In addition, Neha Rastogi, former ex-Apple employee, who in 2017 made national headlines for publicly discussing her 10+ years of abuse in her relationship, will be joining us as a special guest.
“I grew up seeing domestic violence in my community and am a survivor myself. Sakhi changed my life, and I wanted to bring the work to my Indo-Caribbean community so that more women like me could be transformed.”
On the heels of the #MeToo and #Timeisup movement, Brown Girl Magazine, Karuna Chani of KC Makeup, and Sakhi for South Asian Women unite to give South Asian women in our community a platform to share their stories and accounts of sexual harassment and assault on Wednesday, March 21st.
