Thursday in Black – a global movement for a world without rape and violence
Gender based violence is a universal and global issue that harms men, women
and children in their most private spheres. Young girls and women often feel
helpless and hopeless in the face of so much pain and injustice.
Every Thursday, people around the world wear black as a symbol of strength and
courage, representing our solidarity with victims and survivors of violence, and calling for a world without rape and violence with simple but powerful campaign to address gender violence.
We all have a responsibility to speak out against violence, to ensure that boys
and girls, women and men are safe from rape and violence in homes, schools,
work, and streets or in all places in our societies.
Churches Response to HIV and AIDS
Churches Response to HIV and AIDS campaign is based on the knowledge that
communities, churches and general public are living with and affected by HIV
and AIDS. People who live with HIV and die with AIDS are our friends and family,
our teachers and neighbors, our pastors and priests. The pandemic continues to
be measured in alarming statistics around the globe, and the people of faith
everywhere must take up their pastoral and prophetic role to overcome stigma
and discrimination, to care for body and spirit, and to advocate for universal
treatment and effective forms of prevention.
Ecumenical Commission for Human Development holds individuals, religious
leaders, faith based and civil society organizations and government line
departments accountable for the commitments they have made and advocates
for further efforts and resources to respond to HIV and AIDS.
