The student human rights group Voice for the Nameless is sponsoring the event, called "End the Violence!" which will feature local organizations and elected officials discussing the work they do in various areas of preventing violence against women.
Attendees will also view "From Fear to Freedom: Ending Violence Against Women," a 30-minute film.
