Hosted by Savera UK | 14 July 2021 | 4-6pm | online
To mark the National Day of Memory for Victims of ‘Honour’-Based Abuse (HBA), which takes place on 14 July each year, Savera UK will be hosting an online panel event discussing ‘honour’-based abuse and support for migrant women, in the context of the Domestic Abuse Act, which became law in April 2021.
Speakers will include Nicole Jacobs, Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales, Joanne Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, Afrah Qassim, CEO and founder of Savera UK, and testimonies from survivors of HBA and harmful practices. The event will be chaired by Nazir Afzal OBE, Savera UK patron and former Chief Crown Prosecutor for the North West.
Panellists will be discussing the Domestic Abuse Act, how it addresses HBA, and if the protections and support it offers to meet the needs of migrant women at risk of these practices and open the floor to audience questions.
