16-days-res

The ‘We Will Speak Out’ International Coalition has produced our second resource specific to the 16 days of activism against gender based violence.

Our resource for prayer, reflection and action (https://www.wewillspeakout.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/We-Will-Speak-Out-Prayer-Resource-2016.pdf) during the 16 days is available for use by individuals, churches and communities.

We hope that this resource will:
1. Raise awareness of the work of all coalition partners, staff and churches in preventing and responding to gender based violence.
2. Motivate our staff, partners and supporters worldwide to stand up and speak out against injustice against women and girls.
3. Engage with boys, youth and men to create positive images of masculinity – that respect women and treat them as equals
4. Mobilise prayer on this extremely sensitive issue globally.
