In what is being called the Shadow Pandemic, rates of abuse and intimate partner violence are rocketing across the globe as a devastating consequence of quarantine. Survivors need support now more than ever.
Night of Solidarity was an evening of stories, songs, and conversations to stand with survivors of domestic violence, deepening understanding of this issue and offer solutions. It also raised much-needed funds directly for domestic violence prevention organizations through the Together for Her campaign.
Hosted by Tamron Hall with special appearances by (our very own) Carrie Goldberg, Ilana Glazer, Padma Lakshmi, Connie Britton, Amanda Nguyen, Julianne Moore, Gloria Gaynor, Shan Boodram, Mahogany L. Browne, MILCK, Chanel Miller, Peter Sarsgaard, Taylor Schilling, Gloria Steinem, Amber Tamblyn, Miss Universe Zozi Tunzi, Gabrielle Union. As you can probably tell, we haven’t stopped fangirling since.
It was produced by The Meteor, partnering with Refinery29 to broadcast the show on their YouTube channel, and the program was made with input from leading anti-violence organizations, including The National Domestic Violence Hotline, National Network to End Domestic Violence, Crisis Text Line, A Call to Men, RISE, Trans Lifeline, Break the Cycle, A Long Walk Home and Sanctuary for Families. Special thanks to our friend Tanya Selvaratnam for all the work she put in to make this a memorable night.
