For our bimonthly empower hour we are continuing with our Donation Drive and bringing items* that we will give to CPLC De Colores Shelter. Join us for great conversation, good food, camaraderie and activism. This month we are participating in the 16 Days of Activism campaign presented by Rutgers University.

Take action. Post some sample statements on facebook and twitter to help end gender based violence in education:

  • Education is a public good, a fundamental human right upheld in int’l and regional human rights conventions & treaties #16days
  • Girls and young women’s education may be cut short by early or forced marriage #16days
  • Zero tolerance for gender-based violence in education! #16days
  • We all have a role to play in ending gender-based violence in education! #16days
  • No education, no progress! Help end gender-based violence in education #16days
  • Act to end gender-based violence in education! #16days
  • Make it a Reality – End gender-based violence in education! #16days
  • Gender-based violence in education is a human rights issue! #16days
  • My life, my body, my education! #16days
  • Together we can end gender-based violence in education! #16days

We will be right next door to Changing Hands book store, where you can also purchase something to donate to De Colores. Thank you and don’t forget to use the #16DAYS when posting about ending gender based violence.
