A representative of the International Rescue Committee asked me if I would highlight one of their campaigns on this blog and I am very happy to do so:
The International Rescue Committee and the Women’s Commission for Refugee Women and Children need your help in our long-standing fight against violence against women and girls.
There is a new Congress in Washington. It is time to remind our elected representatives that violence against women and girls must end now – and that we need them to do something about it urgently.
We need you to sign a petition that the IRC and Women’s Commission will present to Congress this spring demanding that the fight against sexual violence become a top legislative and funding priority.
Take action now to make your voice heard – and join our fight to end violence against women and girls.
