Saturday, Oct. 3, New York’s New Legacy Leaders will partner with Harlem Hospital Center to host an empowerment event that will be free and open to the public just in time for Domenstic Violence Awareness Month. Titled the “New Legacy Leaders Domestic Violence Healing Conference,” the event will be held at the Harlem Hospital Center and cover various topics, including “Rise Victorious: Women Moving Beyond Pain & Fear to Joy and Purpose” and “The Journey From Superman to Human: Men Creating a World Where Girls and Women Are Loved, Valued and Safe.”
Hosted by celebrity mental health expert Dr. Jeffrey “Dr. Jeff” Gardere, who will provide tips on healthy living, the event will also include live entertainment under the Apollo’s iconic marquee, a special performance set by Gospel star Erica Campbell (of the duo Mary Mary and recent gospel single “I Luh God”) on the Apollo mainstage and an appearance by Darian “Big Tigger” Morgan.
"There are many issues when we're dealing with the mentally ill who are homeless," Gardere says. "A lot of them became homeless because there are no psychiatric beds."
