The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence
CFUW National along with local clubs including Welland and District are again this year supporting The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. This campaign begins this week on Thursday, November 25 and continues until December 10th.
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls. The Campaign was started at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991, as a strategy to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE by 2030 to End Violence against Women campaign is marking the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence (25 November to 10 December 2020) under the global theme, “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!“.
In support, the City of Welland will light the Main St Bridge on Thursday, November 25 in ORANGE.
Please join members of CFUW wearing ORANGE at 5pm on the EAST side of the bridge to safely acknowledge the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism.
