16 Days of Activism to End Gender-based Violence
We are turning UPTOWN WATERLOO ORANGE - November 29, 2019, 7:00 pm.
UPTOWN WATERLOO to turn orange on November 29
The 16 Days between November 25th (The International Day to End Violence Against Women) and Dec 10th (Human Rights Day) are known as the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Based Violence. Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today and is a threat to millions of girls and women online and offline. It affects women regardless of their age, background, or level of education.
On Friday November 29th, the Zonta Club of KW is going to "Orange Waterloo Region". This is a community event where we gather at Waterloo Square for speakers and music. We will turn the Uptown Waterloo lights orange in symbolic support for women & girls. We ask you to join us in this show of solidarity.
The colour orange symbolizes a brighter future, free of violence. It also serves as a means of demonstrating your solidarity in eliminating all forms of violence and it is therefore used as the color of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
Please join us Friday Nov 29th at 7pm!
