19 Days of Activism Prevention abuse and violence against Children/Youth

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 6:30am to Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 3:00pm

The 19 Days Campaign is a WWSF initiative launched in 2011 by the Children-Youth Section and sponsored by the Women's World Summit Foundation - WWSF and other partners.

As a multi-issue coalition of diverse partners using the 19 Days Campaign as an organizing strategy in the fight against at least one of the 19 abuse/violence issues presented in the list of campaign themes, you help create a world fit for children by:

 Raising public awareness of the multi-faceted problem of abuse and violence
 Mobilizing agents for change, organizations, institutions and grassroots faith-based groups
 Educating for better prevention measures
 Strengthening local, national and international initiatives
 Establishing collaboration with other campaign partners
 Creating support at the national, regional and international level
 Linking prevention with the Convention on the rights of the child and the UN Study on violence against children 
 Lobbying governments to implement UN Study recommendations and in particular "prioritize prevention"

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
