Ring The Bell. 25 Nov to 10 Dec 2008

Ring The Bell - 16 Days of Activism Campaign on Violence Against Women and Children

The Diakonia Council of Churches, The Centre for HIV/AIDS Networking (HIVAN/HIV-911) and the World Conference on Religion and Peace (WCRP) have partnered together for the 16 Days of Activism Campaign 2008.

The Campaign commences on 25 November and ends on 10 December and is designed to generate awareness of the plight of women, children and men who experience violence at the hands of others.

This year we have chosen the theme “Ring the Bell – Say NO to Violence”.  We trust that the campaign will encourage everyone to take a stand by “Ringing the Bell” on offenders – having courage to intervene.

A specific theme and colour has been chosen to mark each of the days of the campaign.  There are many ways to get involved, show your support, and simply take time to reflect during the 16 Days of Activism Campaign.
