Move to End ViolenceFollow
Move to End Violence, a program of the NoVo Foundation, is designed to strengthen our collective capacity to end violence against girls and women in the U.S.
One of the powerful conversations from our convening last month centered on healing, love and liberation. Movement makers and healers shared their wisdom about healing and the understanding that we have the medicines we need.
