2016 16 Days of Activism

November 21, 2016


The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign that works to raise awareness about violence against women and the impact this violence causes to a woman’s well-being.  The campaign runs from 25 November, the International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women to 10 December, the International Human Rights Day.  Both these days highlight that violence against women and children is an abuse of human rights.

This year DVCS will interview a member of the DVCS family (including staff, volunteers and Champions) on each of the 16 days and are excited that DVCS Champion Kristen Henry and her team at Mix 106.3 will be assisting in the promotion of this interesting series of interviews.
