34th District Democrats’ April meeting @ online
Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm

In April we will begin our Membership meeting with a special program. April is the 20th anniversary of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. During this time, it is important to bring awareness to sexual violence and educate the community on prevention tactics. Sexual assault is a major public health, human rights, and social justice issue, and it requires everyone’s help to bring it to an end.

This program will be presented by Riddhi Mukhopadhyay (she/her), who is currently the Executive Director at the Sexual Violence Law Center and has been with SVLC since 2012. Riddhi was as a sexual assault and hospital advocate prior to her legal career. Before joining SVLC, Riddhi practiced criminal defense and is a former Berkeley Law Foundation Legal Fellow and attorney with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) where she represented immigrant detainees with mental health and competency issues. She currently serves by appointment on Washington State’s Gender and Justice Commission and the City of Seattle’s Immigrant & Refugee Commission. She is on the board for the Coalition Ending Gender-Based Violence and is adjunct faculty at the University of Washington School of Law. Riddhi received her Juris Doctorate from Seattle University School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts from Duke University.

The program will begin at 6:15 pm and will be followed by a Q&A session which will end at 7pm, when our monthly meeting will be called to order. This event is open to the community. Join via Zoom: zoom.us/j/98150692239

Come learn about the challenges survivors of sexual violence face in our court system, the legislative rights survivors are gaining, and how the Sexual Violence Law Center works to uphold those rights and support survivors.
If you or someone you know have witnessed or been victim to an assault, please call 911; your local assault hotline; the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network at 1-800-656-HOPE; or the National Center for Victim or Crime Victim Service Helpline at 1-800-FYI-CALL or 1-800-211-7996.
