Review for Women's Enews, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

People don't talk about domestic violence in NY's diverse Muslim communities any more than they do in other communities. But for more than five years, Turning Point for Women and Families has been a visible presence at Pakistan Day and other parades, at mosques, and community events letting women know that there is a place they can turn for help in their home language. Perhaps I most admire the work talented youth organizers do each week with the girls group. And girls and young women from around the city go to TP's Mecca to Manhattan workshops in the spring, learning public speaking and a range of other empowering skills.

Its Women's History Month events are always packed, and the annual mother/daughter picnic is a fun and moving moment in TP's calendar.

I've learned first hand from women who have navigated horrible home situations that the dv support is vital.

Role:  Board Member & It would be nice to say I did something heroic, but mostly I draw on my own background leading a nonprofit so that the board work and oversight is professional and tip top. .
