16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence – Day 8 – Be an Ally!

wcc 16days-1 (7) (1)

If you are wondering how you can officially join this campaign, then we’re glad to welcome you! The first step is to educate yourself so you can help others.  There are some great resources listed below.  Understanding the definition of GBV, what related policies are being implemented at your workplace, and what it looks like at home or in school will help you become an ally – a safe place for someone in need. As an ally, we must listen to and believe in the survivors and those affected by violence by saying words like “I believe in you”. Speak out and intervene – express your concerns and seek help when witnessing and experiencing abuse. Act today and show your support by participating in events and donating to organizations working to end gender-based violence. Together, let’s make an impact.
