In what will be its inaugural year for our renamed conference, the Jewel Plummer Cobb Sisters Conference will be presented by the Associate Alumnae of Douglass College Black Alumnae Network (AADC BAN).  The theme of this year’s conference focuses on sexual violence in the Black community and the distinct ways that Black women are affected by sexual violence. This conference will provide a safe space to discuss this specific subject matter as well as an opportunity to promote awareness, to educate and to provide healing practices for attendees. Conference includes continental breakfast and soul food luncheon.
