Week Without Violence (WWV)
We are #OnAMission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. That’s why for more than 20 years, we have set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. This initiative is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
This year, from October 18-23, we are placing the focus on ending gender-based violence. According to YWCA USA, Gender-based violence is recognized as a spectrum of violence, including but not limited to, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harassment. The 2021 theme is Beyond Resilience: From Thriving to Surviving.
More details about the 2021 Week without Violence will be announced soon.
