V-DAY FILIPINA WOMEN'S NETWORK
"Women of Color United Against Violence"
somewhere in the U.S., in a place close to you
a woman becomes
every 20 minutes
and those are just the reported cases.
The Filipina Women's Network advocates for an education campaign to raise awareness
about the violence being perpetrated against Women of Color.
Violence against women takes shape in a multitude of forms including domestic violence,
stalking, rape, sexual assault, the trafficking of women and children,
date rape, verbal abuse, harassment, and hate crimes.
Violence does not discriminate regardless of class, ability, age, education,
immigration status, sexual orientation, and religion.
Join the chorus of voices around the WORLD, as we say "No" to violence against Women of Color. Bring your grandmother, your mother, your wife, your aunt, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your friend. Empower them. Free them. Bring the men in your lives, too.
Let us all help stop the madness.
