Black Woman Heal Day breaks silence about abuse of African-American women
Lilada Gee

We have the utmost respect and appreciation for Madisonian Lilada Gee.

We have long admired her work in the ministry, as an artist and performer, and as the creator of Lilada’s Livingroom, a place for female survivors of sexual assault to find safety, support and recovery. We have been inspired by her courage and the strength of her voice to tell her own story of abuse and encourage others to break the silence of sexual assault.

Lilada’s work goes on Friday, Black Woman Heal Day, a day she founded to increase awareness, healing and prevention of sexual abuse of African American women.

A full list of the day’s events can be found on Lilada’s Facebook page and Twitter accounts. We just want her to know we value and support her important and brave work.
