This year, the Accelerator for Gender Based Violence (GBV) Prevention 16 Days of Activism Campaign seeks to highlight the research, evidence and current policy frameworks that reflect the impact that increased funding can have in preventing GBV. To support the call for Governments and Donors to provide more and better funding for GBV prevention, the Accelerators theme for 16 days is ‘16 Reasons to Fund GBV Prevention’.
This 16 Days of Activism we seek to highlight the research, evidence and current policy frameworks that reflect the impact that increased funding has, not just on GBV work as a whole, but on prevention in particular. Our modality for doing this will include celebrating and amplifying feminist organisations working on GBV prevention, to create a 16 day sprint that amplifies the voices of existing organisations, while bringing to the fore the research that reveals the massive impact better funding has on GBV prevention. While celebrating this work and the organisations behind it, this 16 days is also an opportunity to firmly advocate for more funding towards GBV prevention.
The Accelerator takes an intersectional feminist approach and centers the perspectives of survivors of gendered violence, ensuring ethical practice, platforming diverse voices, and strengthening co-ownership of new advocacy strategies in the GBV prevention field.
We have also developed a social media campaign toolkit to assist organisations and groups across the globe to join us to amplify our call for more and better funding for GBV prevention The attached toolkit provides 16 social media tiles to be posted over 6 posts, using a grouped format, with accompanying text for Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as image description text to support accessibility of the campaign.
We are looking forward to collaborating with you. Please make sure to follow us on social media platforms LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, stay connected to our work, and join us to amplify GBV Prevention Funding!
