Salma Hayek and Samuel L. Jackson become co-chairs of the Caring for Women Dinner

The Kering Foundation’s first-ever Caring for Women Dinner aims to raise funds for organizations working to support people affected by gender-based violence. The dinner will be held on September 15th in New York City and will be hosted by Anderson Cooper.

Co-chaired by Salma Hayek Pinault, François-Henri Pinault, Gisele Bundchen, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Samuel L. Jackson, Julie Mehretu and Gloria Steinem, all proceeds from the event benefit three of the Kering Foundation’s partner organizations: the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), Ms. Foundation For Women and Global Fund For Women.

“Kering and its Houses actively oppose all forms of violence against women, and now more than ever, the Kering Foundation is committed to its mission to create a world where women can live freely in physical and psychological security,” François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering and chairman of the Kering Foundation, said in a statement. “The Caring for Women Dinner marks a milestone in our 14-year history of partnering with frontline organizations that are helping women survivors escape violence and rebuild their lives.”

The NNEDV is a leading voice for victims of domestic violence and their advocates across the United States, representing a network of 56 state and territory coalitions that educate and support survivors of domestic violence. Funds raised at the dinner will support the WomensLaw Email Hotline and, two resources that help provide free legal information to survivors and reach millions of people on issues such as restraining orders, child custody, divorce, immigration, and inform gun laws.

The Ms. Foundation for Women invests in and strengthens the capacity of women-led grassroots organizations to drive meaningful social, cultural and economic change in women’s lives. Funds raised will support the Girls of Color Initiative, which provides scholarships, leadership development, and capacity building to girls of color living under multiple systems of oppression and inequality in the United States

Finally, the Global Fund for Women shifts resources and power in favor of women, girls and all marginalized people worldwide. Kering’s dinner will support the Global Fund for Women Crisis Fund, which works directly with local feminist groups to address immediate needs such as food, shelter and security.

More information about the dinner — including co-hosts, expected attendees, performances and other details — will be announced in the coming weeks. Salma Hayek and Samuel L. Jackson become co-chairs of the Caring for Women Dinner
