Thursdays In Black
August 21, 2019
#ThursdaysInBlack: For A World Without Rape and Violence
Show your solidarity against all forms of sexual and gender-based violence by wearing black on Thursdays. This simple act that started in the 70s as a way to peacefully protest rape and violence is a way to bring awareness to an issue that is too often hidden.
Go a step further and document yourself in black and share it on social media using the hashtag #ThursdaysInBlack and #hcuccTIB or send your photos to email@example.com.

"We all have a responsibility to speak out against violence,
to ensure that women and men, boys and girls,
are safe from rape and violence in homes, schools, work, streets
– in all places in our societies."
