#EnoughIsEnough Summit Report 4/25/18, By Lori Bunton

The National Organization for Women (NOW), in conjunction with the Feminist Majority Foundation, sponsored a one day summit and congressional briefing in DC, Enough.Is.Enough, to address sexual harassment and assault in the workplace and schools.  The goal of the summit was to have speakers from all walks of life-legislators, activists, academics and survivors-explore various facets of sexual violence in workplaces and in schools.  The speakers would address needed improvements in law and policy, recommendations for the most effective methods in preventing and dealing with sexual violence, and strategies to craft a more survivor-centric legal system.
