IMATU will be supporting the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children Campaign. It takes place every year from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day). The period includes Universal Children’s Day and World AIDS Day.
The purpose of the Campaign is to raise awareness and educate people regarding the negative impact that violence has on women and children. The Campaign also seeks to encourage individuals to act against abuse. You can support the campaign by wearing a white ribbon during the 16-day period. A white ribbon is a symbol of peace and symbolises the commitment of the wearer to never commit or condone violence against women and children.
We encourage all of our members to proudly wear white ribbons from 25 November to 10 December 2016.
