As we commemorate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, COPE Ontario reaffirms its unwavering commitment to eradicating all forms of violence and discrimination against women and marginalized genders. This annual global campaign, running from November 25th to December 10th, serves as a poignant reminder of the urgent need to address the pervasive issues surrounding gender-based violence.
Throughout these 16 days, COPE Ontario stands united with advocates, survivors, and organizations around the world in raising awareness, fostering dialogue, and driving tangible action to combat the root causes of gender-based violence.
Our organization firmly believes that everyone has the right to live free from violence, coercion, and fear, irrespective of their gender identity or expression. By amplifying the voices of survivors and challenging societal norms that perpetuate violence, we aim to create a more just and equitable future for all.
As we reflect on the progress made and the challenges that persist, let us recommit ourselves to the principles of justice, equality, and dignity for all. COPE Ontario stands in solidarity with those affected by gender-based violence and remains dedicated to fostering a world where every individual can live without fear and violence.
Together, let us be the catalysts for change during these 16 Days of Activism and beyond.
