Silenced No More

October 6, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am CDT


Join Women Employed for a conversation with leaders and advocates about how the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act―first introduced by Congresswoman Bustos― restores power to survivors of sexual assault and sexual harassment, and how this law provides survivors the opportunity to seek justice and public accountability in the light of day.

Guests will learn more about what this new law means, how it impacts them, and their rights to pursue justice and seek the legal remedy that works best for them.

• Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, U.S. Rep, IL-17
• Cherita Ellens, President and CEO, Women Employed
• Tanuja Gupta, Technologist and Activist
• Carrie Ward, Chief Executive Officer, Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault (ICASA)
