Read an exclusive editorial now in the Atlanta Jewish Times by AJFF Executive Director Kenny Blank and Executive Director of the Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta, Rachel Wasserman about the two organizations coming together for a program to commemorate Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Over 200 people came together in April for an encore screening of the documentary feature, Brave Miss World. The film tells the story of former Miss World, Linor Abargil, and her campaign to transform personal tragedy into global awareness. A portion of ticket sales will support sexual assault prevention efforts.
As stated by Blank and Wasserman, "This event was especially successful because of the many community partners that took an active role: Congregation Dor Tamid Sisterhood, Hadassah Greater Atlanta, International Women’s House, Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Women’s Philanthropy, Jewish Women International, Metro Atlanta Community Mikvah, National Council of Jewish Women, Partnership Against Domestic Violence, Temple Kehillat Chaim Sisterhood, Temple Kol Emeth Women of Reform Judaism, Temple Sinai and The Temple. Both AJFF and JWFA are committed to raising awareness and promoting social change and to creating experiences that bring our community together for dialogue and understanding. We are proud of our collaboration and hope that it serves as a model for other organizations whose purposes may align, affording them similar chances to engage and work in partnership."
