16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence

Together We Can End Gender Based Violence and Promote Gender Justice

This year's slogan is "Walk Our Talk", together we can end Gender Based Violence and promote Gender Justice.

A new look at some key documents in our GBV work and commitment as a Communion. Where are we with these commitments? Time to get past the talking stage and commit to take measurable action to:

  1. Raise awareness about Gender Based Violence as a human rights issue at the local, national, regional and international levels,
  2. Strengthen local work around violence against women,
  3. Establish a clear link between local and international work to end violence against women,
  4. Provide a forum in which organizers can develop and share new and effective strategies,
  5. Demonstrate the solidarity of women around the world organizing to overcome violence against women,
  6. Create and feature tools for this work in the churches, along with tools to pressure governments to implement promises made to eliminate violence against women,
  7. Springboard into planning for year-long focus on overcoming Gender Based Violence and promoting Women’s empowerment,

to end Gender Based Violence.
