WED. Nov 25 – 16 days of Activism: The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign that runs annually from November 25 (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (World Human Rights Day). The 16 Days are an opportunity to unite with partners around the world and reflect on what we can each do in our own communities and in our own lives to eliminate the disproportionate violence faced by women, girls and LGBTQ2 individuals. Starting November 25th to December 10th, show your solidarity by displaying purple décor, lights, hearts, etc. on you, your home or business. Post a picture of you wearing purple, or your decorated house/business, tag us, and use the hashtag #OurActionsMatter to commemorate The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
