16 Days Campaign

16 Days Campaign

Join ACRATH and the international community for 16 days of activism against gender-based violence. The United Nations 16 days of activism begins on Wednesday, 25th November – International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and ends of 10th December – Human Rights Day.

Over the 16 Days of Activism we will be sharing stories,  focusing on the people working in the areas of forced labour, forced marriage and supply chains, as well as creating opportunities for learning, prayer and reflection. ACRATH has resources and two special events during the 16 Days of Activism that you are invited to ‘attend’. All details of the following events can be found here.
